There's a female Japanese player (Date?) that plays with a 14 ounce racquet. The Williams sisters play with light Wilson frames but the swingweights are really up there. I think that Serena's SW is higher than Roger's.

Sharapova plays with a YouTek Radical Pro with a Instinct MP PJ. A few of Hantuchova's frames were on sale at the string forums and you can go and check the specs there.

It's not that hard to get Pro Stocks.

They are not magic either. The benefits are that XLs are available, pros can get matched frames to their weight, balance, SW specs. Pros can get molded handles and they can get frames that are out of retail production.
