    Since midsize racquets are rapidly losing their popularity on the men's tour, I was wondering if they have become extincted on the women's tour.

    The last time I saw a Sloane Stephens match, she was using a Head Prestige Mid. I can't think of any other WTA player using a mid.

    Melanie Oudin has used the KPS88 in the past:

    95 must be the lowest for a high ranking player - Henin.

    Sloane Stephens using Head Prestige Mid (or PJ), ~89 sq. in.

    Prestige mid? That's exciting, I use the same racquet! How's this Stephen girl, does she have good potential? What's her game like? from what I've seen briefly on youtube she seems quite defensive?

    Sloane Stephens Prestige mid is the 16x19 version, not the 18x20.

    I heard a quote from Federer that there are only like 3 players left playing 90 inch racquets and one handed everything, sorry I don't have the link.
