Training with one racket and playing match with another, is just a recipe for disaster.
The days where footballers could promote Nike and get away with painting over the 3 Adidas stripes on their match shoes, are long gone.
It would of course indicate that she is thinking of changing racket though, whether she is willing to buy out of her current contract or they are willing to terminate her contract (possible given her results) we don't really know.
