    noticed it at her match last night
    did she just color the "Prince" logo on the throat and the O3 area at 12 and 6 o clock to a pinkish color?

    Were you actually at the match and it was pink? Because if it's just a photo, it looks like it's just the light at that angle that makes it seem pink.

    If it really is pink, I could imagine Sharapova taking a pink Sharpie to her stick. Better check if she did the same to Andy's :p

    Go to G E T T Y, it shows it better there than anywhere else. It is pink at the top, probably just her own personalized frame. If Prince had any interest in selling those, I'm sure they would have by now.

    Her's is a custom racquet. I say this because it has a tighter string pattern (I think 18 X 20 (haven't counted lately)) than the retail O3 white. And I think the pink is in recognition for the fight against breast cancer.

    I think it's the Asian version. Wasn't this discussed before?

    i am sure thats not the racquet she is using...head size too big, too light...everyone should know by now that any high level pro is using a one off custom racquet...

    I have been on court for every Sharapova Match, as a photographer. And, through my long lens, it is for sure pink lettering on her racquet.

    Sharpova's prince 03 has prince written in pink(like you said)and a few O wholes are painted in pink as well(the one from the top of the head).She also has different string tension from the o3s white available in shops..or i think that her o3 white can be found in Japan..
