The 2008 US Open is well under way with the finest tennis players from all over the world slamming their best at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center for the year’s final Grand Slam. Since tennis is very popular as a spectator sport too, this year’s tournament will also see many noteworthy celebrities dropping in to catch all the action. And Asia Muhammad is all geared up to impress all not only with her serves and smashes but also with her diamond studded racket. This Las Vegas tennis sensation is making her professional debut with her signature pink racket encrusted with grand diamond initials. A local Las Vegas jeweler, Michael E. Minden, has custom-fitted Asia’s racket with 1.00 ctw of VS quality pave set diamonds in two letter A’s above her grip on both sides. Trained at Andre Agassi’s Las Vegas Academy, Asia has ranked in the top 10 throughout her young career. Having such an imposing record up her sleeve and a stylish bejeweled racket in her hand, this young lady will make many heads turn.

Coming to the bling factor, the diamonds are F-G in color and each diamond initial weighs .50 carats. A single initial will set your score back by $1,750 while two initials that look better will cost you $3,400.
