Looks like another Wilson pro using a Steam 100 painted. It must be a great racket. Wilson should release the actual in more favorable specs
De Minaur plays the Steam 99 (16 x 18) like Halep and Svitolina. Ferrer used this too.Why do a bunch of WTA players like the Steam? I can't remember anyone on the ATP using a steam (unless Nishikori??).
Svitolina playED with the Steam 99, she's switched around 2019 to Steam 100.De Minaur plays the Steam 99 (16 x 18) like Halep and Svitolina. Ferrer used this too.
Steam still fills the hole in Wilson's lineup between the tweeners (Burn, Juice, Ultra, Clash) and the player's racquets (Pro Staff, Blade).
Nice detective work!Wilson steam BLX 100?
Paula Badosa Gibert of Spain plays a forehand in the girl's singles final match against Anna Kalinskaya of Russia on day fourteen of the 2015 French Open at Roland Garros on June 6, 2015 in Paris, France.

Could be the same racquet and they all seem to have the same 16x20 string pattern. She still uses a "heart" vib-dampener.
Thanks. And I think I was still a bit off. Harry_Wild pointed out It's a Wilson Steam 100 "prostock" which I was unaware of. Looking at that pic of her in white playing in the 2014 Wimbledon juniors, the racquet she's holding resembles closer the prostock steam 100, not a retail BLX (- at least not the retail BLX with the yellow stripe colors, but possibly still with a thin black "BLX" on the inner opposite red side of the inside 'wilson" lettering on the hoop), where it likely shows "99" in the red box under the four white grommets, but the headsize is still 100 sq. in. -> (webpage info of the prostock steam 100 here). It seems to match more including the throat to handle grip section with no small "wilson" letters on the throat middle and no yellow paint of the retail blx version, and the throat beams are more boxed on edge. But overall, the retail Steam 100 BLX may be the closest racquet out there still, in the public offer sites, to this prostock Steam 100.Nice detective work!
