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.

Are you sure this is 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.

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.

Same paintjob, not the same racquet.
