    One thing in life at the moment is that contracts mean nothing. Any contract can be brought out, if its 2 years of life, but there will be a big figure. Prince could even want to of load her so save the bucks, unlikely but possible. The fact that she is even trying another brand of stick shows that its possible for her to move on.

    I could also simply be a Prince prototype.

    If it was, there would be a P on the butt cap.

    My guess is she's just using the YouTEK Radical Pro until her shoulder gets better or until Prince copies it for her for Paris.

    Definetly a Head. Identical throat grommets to the radical pro.

    Kinda answers the question . . .

    If a pro could use any racquet they wanted, what would it be.

    Kind of looks like that head Davydenko was spotting trying last year. I am sure somebody on here has a pic of that...

    Also, Davydenko and Masha share an important thing in common: their stringer & racquet tech, Roman Prokes.

    Not necessarily. Other companies could use teflon grommetts. The chances of this are unlikely. But you still cannot be 100% sure...

    Who else has grommets in the throat bridge like that and who else uses that HEAD Butt-cap?

    It's a HEAD arcquet.

    unsolicited comment from head insider is that it's a blacked out radical

    the tools don't make the craftsman (or woman).

    daggone, if that racquet made you play better, people (myself included) would be hijacking trucks to get it!

    oh, btw, nice avatar, samster. every time i see that, i just want to wear loafers without socks and a white jacket over a pastel shirt!

    Really she dated him? WTF? He's a **** ant in the NBA. I mean you would think someone has hot as her could be dating someone a bit better like Kevin Durant lolz.

    Has to be a Radical MP or Mid because it's clearly an 18x20 pattern.

    Actually one of my friend's have a racket bought from the States which is paint-jobed just like that, and it is a Head Youtek Speed with exactly the same grommets. I think it's very likely a Head racket

    How would she break a lifetime contract? Is it possible?
