    Patty Schnyder recently said
    Schnyder, who hit 28 winners to nine for Krajicek, won four games at love and advanced in 57 minutes. She said she shook a recent slump when she switched rackets.

    "I tried everything during training sessions. The problem was the racket," Schnyder said. "With my new racket, after two or three shots I felt, `This was my racket.' I'm delighted that I've found this racket. I have very good feelings with it."


    Does anyone know what it is, because it looks like a prestige without the racket cover delie, but im no expert. thanks

    Still the same LM paintjob. Maybe jura or Thomas Martinez can enlighten us.

    In Berlin she used a FP paintjob. And she told me that she's using this racking since 2001 - no changes except of cosmetics. In her words it is "a mixture of everything": radical, a little bit prestige and her old racket, the Supreme Competition XL. She also tried a CAP bumper (of the i. prestige) "but this changed everything" and she didn't like it.

    Curious...I saw some pics of her playing Krajicek at Roland Garros, and she was clearly wielding something with Liquidmetal Prestige paint.

    You're right. In Berlin she had a new set of rackets with the FXP pj (I strung one totally new stick) and she used it also at the beginning of Rome. But then she took the old pj. No idea why because they should be the same. Maybe she wasn't satisfied with the setup.
