    why is it that everyone seems to pretty much accept the fact that most male tennis players do NOT use the stock versions of the racquets they endorse, whereas no one really says the same about women? clearly, most of the top women's players can hit the ball hard enough where things like stability and control take a greater precedence over power and lightness, yet players like venus and serena are using what appear to be oversized, light racquets or what we may call "granny sticks."

    I don't know why the Williams sisters use those "granny sticks", but there are women who also use paintjobs. Just take Sharapova for example, she uses the TT Hornet under her Shark, and the Williams sisters also use paintjobs of lower end Wilson frames. Paint jobs are prevelent in the WTA also.

    Paintjobs also for Davenport, Henin, and perhaps also Mauresmo.

    well, few people on this message board talk about women's tennis so Id say it's more due to lack of interest than anything else.

    What do Davenport and Henin use? I think they're listed as N-Tours.

    That's because when we talk about women we don't think in paintjobs, but in another kind of jobs :mrgreen:
