    Interesting seeing comments on her racquet. If it is a Prince I don't think it is a Speed Sport as there are no large "speed sport" grommets on the side of the frame nor does there appear to be the Prince "EXO" skeleton piece wrapped around the outside of the frame. It looks like a traditional thin beamed players racquet, with really no bells and whistles. And as it is blacked out it could be any brand.

    Sharapova seems to be a good business woman so I doubt she would jepordize a 25 million dollar contact but it's courious that she and Prince are hidding something.

    t has been reported that she is working on a deal with Head, after a parting with Prince. If she is plainly not using their trademark and highly visable tech, they should be happy to see her go.

    Wow didn't somebody mentioned Prince just dropped a few of their sponsored player and handed a big sum to Sharapova not too long ago?

    Now she is ready to move on? Prince's sales won't look too good!

    Rumor has it that Prince has been cutting back its sponsorship of pro players to cut costs as I might believe some racket companies have been doing. Perhaps, Prince jumped the gun with a lifetime contract and offered Sharapova a buyout.
