    She was playing badly for a few games in a row and lost it before rallying to win the match easily.

    She then said in the press conference something like 'I recently opted for a new racquet and it is more fragile'. Wilson will appreciate the endorsement...

    Are those powerholes on that racquet, or is that black paint?

    When she broke it, I wonder if she had to swing 2 times harder than she used to w/ her old racquet............

    "nCoded racquets measure 2 times stronger 2 times more stable and up to 22% more powerful than ordinary racquets. "

    Serena stated that she felt she had an anger management issue, and to-day she withdrew from her match with Safina, citing stomach flu and that she was "mentally unwell". Definitely something going on with her at the moment. She did explain to the fans the reasons for her withdrawal in French, and that was a class act. Would that more English-only speaking players made the same effort .

    i was watching this one guy play at a local prize money tournament. he was winning the match but had a few bad games where he got mad and broke the racket on his foot, unfortunatly he broke his foot too and had to quit.

    I am pretty sure they are powerholes. But don't get the wrong idea, that isn't a hammer 6.4. Wow, I almost believed that. :)

    Ha,ha, a few years ago at a country tennis tournament a guy had just lost his match and we watched him snap two Dunlop 200G's. Not the new kind but the ones that Mac and Graf used to use and if you've ever played with those sticks you'll realise just how hard it was to do. Now that is what Id call an anger management issue LOL.
