I see i`m not the only one who noticed this :)

No, it`s not RDX500. It looks like the new RDS001 but with red color instead of yellow...

CaroRulz - Nice catch. Of course, Makiri's Official Site not a help. Nor is the WTA Tour site which has her still with the RDX 300. Tennis Warehouse no help either, nor was the Yonex site. So I wrote Yonex Customer Service an email and asked them. When I hear back will post their response. Am sure we will hear something soon from Yonex marketing, you don't pay Makiri "big bucks" and then not market what racquet she is using.

They'll probably launch the new racquet sometime soon...maybe the AO. Same as Prince may do with big Maria's new one...

Yep its a RDS 003...same racquet as Nicole Vaidisova is now using. I had a close look at one at the AO, has the usual interesting Yonex shape to it :cool:

RDS 003 still not on Yonex's US site, but here is what they show on the main (Japan) site:

Looks like they did a "launch" with the Tokyo Yonex conference this week. In the stable of pro players Yonex has signed up, Makiri seems to be somewhat of an afterthought.
