have u guys noticed how serena feeds her opponent with smashes during the warm up?
normally players do it with a slice grip, she does with a forehand grip

it is symbolic for how little touch and feeling the williams sisters have?

also the rackets they are playing with - they are rackets for amateurs/hobby players - none of the male players play with those rackets

As someone whos played with both of their rackets i can tell you that they arent even remotelly the same.

If you knew ANYTHING AT ALL about tennis, you would know that players don't use a "slice grip" when feeding overheads and Venus and Serena DON'T REALLY USE the H4 and H6. Just paintjobs of them to endorse the racquets :rolleyes:

not sure but probably some discontinued Wilson models from the late 90's.

I know from a friend that Serena's raquet is most probably specially tailored to her requests, coz he bought the raquet Serena "uses" and it was a lot smaller in head size, and he thought Serena had a much larger head size than the ones available for sale.

Andre Agassi also does this, and I'm sure a few other players do aswell :)

All players except probably Kim and the Babolat players do it.
