  2. 85 sq. in. 18/20 pattern. Blue leather Wilson grip(?) on her "Pro Staff 7.0" and "7.5." Weight: maybe in the low 12 ounces. Pretty cool paintjobs on those rackets with "Steffi Graf" replacing "Classic Lite" on the throat and upper hoop. The overgrip and strings information (TOA?) must be online if you search. Natural Gut. Well, that's what I've gathered and remembered anyway. Wilson regularly supplied Graf with black demo frames for use in practice, like most any top pro. Oh, and probably a 4 3/8" grip size.

    My wife has a 7.5 and it's 95 sq in 16x18 - same mould as the PSC 6.1 but much less stiff.

    yeah, max 200g. later on in her career she used a custom wilson 7.5 that was 85" head, and 18x20 pattern. the retail version was 95" 16x18 i believe w/ similar cosmetics.

    And she used Toalson Grip. I'm using her signature toalson grip right now on my Prince.
