Did any female pro ever play with the Prestige Classic?
Alexandra Stevenson was one.
Jelena Dokic, Claudia Kodhe-Kilsch, And a few others I cannot recall the name of right now.
Claudia Kohde-Kilsch?!?!? When was that? I can only remind her playing the Adidas Ivan Lendl, Wilson Ultra II and later the Wilson Ultra Ceramic. Are you sure you don't change her with Barbara Rittner who was using the Prestige before she switched to Wilson?!
And wasn't Dokic using an i. prestige MP?
Natalie Dechy of France
I think it was a i.Prestige MP. It was not a 600 cm2 head size.
What you wrote Jura is what I remember Claudia Kohde-Kilsch using. I remember Dokic using the real i.Prestige mid, a real LM Prestige mid for a short time, and then a i.Prestige mp with LM Prestige cosmetics.
What about Conchita Martinez? She used the Elite Pro. Does that count?
what about the greek player - daniliidou or something like that?
I think Judith Wiesner of Austria used the Prestige Pro and Prestige Classic...
When I think of judith Wiesner I only remember her with Fischer. When did she use the Prestige?
Yes, you're right Jura, I'm confusing her with Roz Fairbank-Niedefer. Why, I do not know. And Dokic did for a bit use a real Prestige Classic. She was all over the place. Still is, crazy girl.
How about Patty Schneider? did she ever use one?
...boy, you guys are REALLY 'tickling the grey matter' with this one !!!?!?!?!
No! Her first Head was a Supreme Competition XL, than she switched to her actual 630-mold.
yes, she used to play with this racquet when she was younger
My current coach used to coach Alexandra Stevenson. Now he coaches me!!
Sharapova played with the prestige classic when she was young. It helped her develop good mechanics.
I've heard this too about Sharapova, but would the young Masha really use a 12oz+ PC600, then later, by the time she won Wimbledon according to Prokes, use a 10.3oz frame? I realize that the lower SW of a standard length frame may make this more plausible, as she uses extended length later on.
Her prince frame is custom made and it is much heavier than stock. But she did use a pc 600 when she was learning to play.
Bovina did for a while as well
Golovin used the Prestige when she was young, also.
