Oh, and Roman Prokes of RPNY once stated that the heaviest racquet of any pro that he strung for, man or woman, was Gabriela Sabatini's.
IIRC, I read some where that some of his frames were even heavier. Around the 16 oz. mark. I'll do some digging and see if I can find that.
Just for shiggles though, I played with a 396g frame for a while. Stability was killer.
