    They should bring out a line of 'Princess' racquets for her to use+endorse. Sorta like the W-Line from Wilson.

    Sounds like out of everything they sell she gets a portion.

    Yonex has every woman they need right now, and with Sharapova tanking and so concentrated on out side events of tennis, she looks bad.

    Heck Yonex has all the best up and coming players

    Yeah she is tanking this year. Still has a #4 ranking, won a tier 1 event, finals of 2 other tier 1 events, 2 grandslam semis. She should retire its looking bad for her.

    except Wilson has the more man-looking females to endorse the W Line

    Has Masha really helped spur sales of Prince racquets? I think Masha is coming out ahead in this deal. Nobody speculates about the stick she uses compared to Fed.

    Apart from the people on this tennis board, most people take the racquet at face-value. If it looks like the 03 White, she must be using the 03 White, therefore I should get the 03 White.

    Agreed, Prince did the right thing. But, I think Maria got a good deal out of this probably.

    She would put me off buying an 03 white. So annoying and screechy.
