Sharapova's new racket
 


Does anyone know more about it? It doesn't have a Logo, but it must be Prince. Maybe a prototype to help her with her injuries?

Looks like a head frame? Some sort of youtek?

It can't be. She has a life time contract with Prince...

The white grommets look like a 16/19 Head speed pro racquet

Maybe, but it is a Prince Prototype. It has to be due to her contract...

RafaPan 05-08-2010 10:14 AM

She doesn't have a lifetime contract. Only ten years, but they're not up yet.

Yeah i thought that it look like Teflon Grommets and a YouTek Racket

dantheman 05-08-2010 12:27 PM

it looks like a head youtek radical or speedpro. i think head might try picking her up for endorsement

Blade0324 05-08-2010 05:39 PM

Looks like a Head Yutek to me. 16x19 about 98 in. frame I'd say either a radical custom drilled or possibly a speed. Judging by the throat I'd say speed. Pretty thin beam too.

That ultra-stiff Prince Black finally blew out her arm.

Looks like a YT Radical Pro to me. Smart move on her part to get away from those very stiff O port racquets. It will help her elbow and shoulder problems a lot. The Radical Pro is only 58RA.

Anyone know if she really changed from the White to the Black or was it just a different paint job? The Black is significantly stiffer than the white.

I'm wondering if she is checking out different rackets and that Prince would just try to duplicate whatever one she likes for her?

Is it known that Sharapova's racquets (as opposed to the retail EXO3 Black) are in fact stiff?

No no, you got it all wrong! Now you know where Sharapova gets her tennis fashion after good "performance"! ;)

Nanshiki 05-08-2010 11:14 PM

90% chance that she got fed up with the bullcrap new racquets and went back to the racquet she won her slams with, regardless of what her contract said.
