    Most likely a pj. Dunlop seems to be spreading the pj's around. Molik and Jamie Murray with the 500; Thomas Johansson, Haas, Robredo with the 300; Berdych with the 200. They all use the same racquets they always have under new paint.

    I spoke to Molik at Charleston few months back. She said that she's using the 300g under the paintjob.

    Thanks for the personal insight and for sharing.

    Ah good to hear she's still with the 300g. It suits her game. And she did well again Serena despite losing. This again is an example of a Pro sticking to what they know best - namely their old racquet.

    With tennis season really being year round, and the fact that they earn their money from matchplay - Pros cannot afford to switch. Or rather they don't do so easily or readily.

    Molik did switch to the Head Flexpoint Prestige MP (no, not a paintjob) after she came back from injury. A few losses and some lost confidence later (all related to the time away from the tour), she switched back to the old 300G.

    I hate to tell you this but Molik's Flexpoint Prestige MP was a Paintjob. It was a Pro Tour 630 with the Paintjob of the Flexpoint Prestige.

    Notice how the Flexpoint area is painted and the grey shading simulating the dimple.

    Look at the grooves in the throat. The real Flexpoint Prestige MP has NO groove in the throat area. Also you can see the shading again simulating the dimple in the Flexpoint area.
