    Has she changed racquets?Looks like either her old 03 blacked out white or some new head.I dont know does anyone have any opinons?The commentators thought she went back to her old prince.

    Saw the match today, and you could tell from the close up camera shots that her racquet was NOT any kind of Prince Exo3; the racquet she was using definitely had traditional-style grommets. It also looked like a thinner beam than the Exo3 Black. Hard to tell what she has switched to...

    I bet the only thing that's custom is the color and trap door. If **** built this for her, why would they put a Head butt cap on her custom handle?

    How do you know this, did you just have a quick hit on the practice courts with her?

    It could possibly be a youtek TGK radical with the 16x19 string pattern, similar to the pj that berdych was using.

    Berdych has the black grommets, which tells me it's a custom job from the folks in Austria. Maria's is the only one on the tour I've seen with white grommets.

    That makes me think they got a stock radical, popped the grommets out painted it and popped them back in again.

    Saw all the threads here about the racquet so I had to go watch the match on my DVR.

    Paused several times and looked close.
    100% not a Prince racquet, looks very close to a head and actually not all that different from what we saw Davy playing with for a little while (anyone remember that?).

    I actually was listening to the commentating and heard Pam Shriver say it looks like a new racquet but not all that different from her regular Prince. I LOL'd at how clueless Pam really is.
