    Very clever. As for the OP, I enjoy the satire. It seems every time a match is shown, a thread is started during that match regarding the equipment of the player(s). Not saying it is a bad thing, just that using the search function would cut down on a lot of seemingly duplicate threads.

    When I was a kid, my dad had a racket he got when stationed in England in the 1950's that said "By Appointment to the King." or something like that on it. Since the queen doesn't seem to play much, and probably hasn't bought a new racket, that would probably be it. It was much heavier than my dad's Jack Kramer rackets. Maybe some sitting in a storage closet in a castle somewhere. It was blue, maybe had gold writing. Maybe some wood racket historian could figure out what it was.

    The Queen was using the Kfactor tour with Natural gut and Alu rough. But she switched to the kblade 98 due to the Kfactor being too heavy. She has ok strokes, but she can't beat pushers. I'd say she's a 3.0 at best. :p

    She's not just the queen of England folks...

    Re her racquet, I reckon she'd use something girly like a Yonex S-Fit.

    She's a 7.5.

    HRH would beat Federer 0-6 0-6 0-5 after Federer retires from being hung drawn and quartered.

    She beats every one 6-0 6-0 6-0 because she will say "Off with his/her head" if anyone even dares take a game off her :)

    I don't understand the question. All you have to do is get one of Elton John's rackets from the WTT exhibition matches.

    Any idea what the blue racket is that said "By appointment to the king." that may have been a year or two older?
