Re: Are They Playing With The Same Racket?

no. they are playing with the sam paint job. they are using the sam raquets they've been using since wimbledon last yea just painted to look like the kblade team. they are similar racquets but the specs are a little different.

Re: Are They Playing With The Same Racket?

I think Vee plays with a rather bigger frame and a more open stringbed. Serena prefers a tighter one. So I guess they're painjobs of the black and white golden rackets.

Re: Are They Playing With The Same Racket?

Is this the same racket Ree used at last years AO? I just imagined it had a lot thinner frame last year...er, I'm confused.

I was practicing with Venus in Florida, and she was just killing me. I'm kind of glad she didn't make it, for my sake (laughter). You can't sleep on her because she's playing unbelievable. I got to take my chance now while she's out because when she's coming back, she's really playing like she's playing with no fear and she's practicing really hard. Yeah, she's playing unbelievable. > Serena Williams AO '07

Re: Are They Playing With The Same Racket?

Same paintjob, not the same racquet.
