Wozniacki really using Yonex VCORE 100 S? Leaded up?
 
Its very light racket, 314g strung. Anyone knows if, and where, she uses lead tape?

thanks :)

In this pic it looks like she has at least some lead in the head. But Kerber seems to be using it without any lead in the head.

At Eastbourne this year I added some lead at 10/2 position on her coaches request. She test 1 frame, and then I did the same to another 6 rqts. I think the weight was about 2 x 4g for each rqt. Her mum, who dropped off the rqts, said that they'd been matched in New York and were all the same. There wasn't any lead showing other than what I put on.

That would be really head heavy, with 8 grams at 10/2.

With 2 grams at the butt + leather grip + og + dampener, mine is already at 336 grams & 6.5 HL

It would still only get it to around 330 swingweight, or the same as the new extreme mp, and confirms again the data presented by Travlerjam that pros have much less head light racquets.

Paul,

Thanks for the info. Do you remember her grip size?

Sorry, no. I dont tend to check gripsizes of the rqts I strung although some are a little more noticeable as its stamp on the buttcap.
