    i know this is just about a year ago, but i stumbled upon a video of Sharapova testing out new string and i was just wondering if anyone had any info of what it could be. she usually plays full natural gut

    She also plays with hybrid a lot. I've seen at least two set ups. Sorry no pics. One should be w/ Alu power and one with some red strings could be technifibre.

    She usually uses Pro Hurricane mains, which looks like gut. But she'd been using that setup for years. This is either Red Code or the Babolat R string, which is more likely because she uses Pro Hurricane.

    oh cool. i would always see on TW when you click on hurricane it shows that she is endorsing that string and i always thought it was wrong. thanks for clearing that up.

    and just for a side note, if it is the babolat R string i wonder if she liked that setup. ive heard some pretty bad reviews about it.
