Default Petra Kvitova racket

I wonder which racket Petra Kvitova is actually playing. Officially she plays a Wilson Pro Staff 97, but if you look at pictures from Doha 2018, you can see that she has a string pattern of 16x20. Maybe she plays a Burn 95CV painted like a Pro Staff 97?

No, officially it is a Wilson Pro Staff 97:

But if you look at recent pictures, you can see, that her string pattern is not the 16x19 of the pro Staff, but the 16x20 of the Burn 95:

Maybe some custom version of the Pro Staff?

There is a difference berween the paintjob of the racquets and what there is under the paintjob. That is a prostock (or Pro room) racquet, made specifically for pros and different from the retail. Someone with more experience than me can confirm that, but the Kvitova’s racquet isn’t a Pro Staff.

Luciano;

Wilson players endorse frames What they actually play with is flexible.
