Hey does anyone know what raquet Venus played with when she played Kournikova at Wimbledon (1999?) was it a yonex or wilson??? and what headsize was it??? it really looks ALOT smaller than what she regularly uses

She was surely with Wilson at this time (if it was 99, I think the Williams switched to Wilson 97 or 98 ). And I think Venuas always used a 110 sq in racket. Same as her actual n4 OS.

do you have any idea why she switched fom that headsize to an oversize??
and is her W5 racket an n4?

??? 110 sq in IS Oversize! I never saw her using something else. The first pic of Venus I can remember was when she was 10 years old. She used a Wilson Profile 110.
Yes, her W5 is just a pj of her customized n4 OS.

Why does a woman with her height, frame and power need an oversized racquet???

trampchamp2003 06-07-2006 07:30 PM

seriously! and its so frustrating as a die hard fan to watch her make mistakes that I don't think she could/would make with a 95-100 sq in. racquet
