Ivanisevic racquet.....Prestige....
 
Was wondering what prestige he is using these days. As I can see it is 16x19, so he made that switch from the old days (18x20 PC600). Could it be prestige s?.... from pictures that I found I can't tell which model it is.

Yesterday he commented match on PBZ Indoors in Zagreb, and he said about strings in tennis world that there is great tech improvement, and that in 90's when he played, if he missed sweet spot on serve that his whole body was under vibration, from arm to legs, and that in now days it is pretty much easier.

Thanks Vs.
He said that he can still put 216 kmh on serve, this year on AO.
Nice for an old man :)

The beam looks roundish. Could be a weighted Prestige S.

It cant be. Its the Prestige Pro. First off the Prestige S has shared holes and 6 mains in the bridge. While Ivanisevic's racquet has no shared holes and 8 mains in the bridge. Also the gooves in the throat bridge is that of the Prestige Pro/MP.

Somewhere I read or heard that Ivo won Wimbledon with very loose gut string tension in his Prestige - 40 or so due to the shape of his shoulder at that stage. Can anyone confirm that?

Goran is awesome.

Sorry for not knowing, but can someone explain what are, or how the shared holes look like?
