    I just saw a picture on the US Open website and her black Yonex frame had yellow sections. At first I thought there must have been an issue with the camera but after searching for other images on Google I realised she has a completely new paint-job. Prior to the US Open I believe she was using the Yonex EZONE Xi (100).

    Isn't it the pj for a "Yonex EZONE Xi Team Plus 102"? I know she likes extended length rackets......

    I don't think the Yonex EZONE Xi Team Plus 102 has that much yellow on it. Must be part of the new EZONE line up coming out in January

    using a pic of her for something else is useless.You just have your eyes fixed on her.:-?

    It wouldn´t make a difference if she held a pyton snake or a racket

    I couldn't pay attention on the racket once the team was Hingis and Hantuchova.

    I normally like yellow in frames but for some reason I think I prefer the current EZONE Xi paint-job.
    The new paint-job looks like a cross between the Yonex RDiS 001 and the Fischer M Pro Number One to me.

    now imagine when the team was Hingis and Kournikova.Their dinamics and gesture were a plus.That was explosive.

    Looks like she caught whiff of something. Some say she has a bloodhound nose for certain scents. Cokeheads are always using their sense of smell to view the world.

    That's kind of too modest. Ever since they did that metallic orange pj Yonex has been stepping back. For an Asian co. I expect them to come up for some flashy pj, even if it is Jp exclusive or something.
