Anyone notice it in his 1st round match at Wimbledon and know what it is?
Looks good on that paintjob.

It seems that it's the same string than Petrova uses since RG... (look at R200C posts)
Anybody has any picture to post ?

do you think its just a diff color version of the string he usually uses, or a totaly diff string?

06-24-2008, 10:16 AM
I don't think there are any Babolat strings where they offer a variety of color for the same string type, so I'm leaning more towards a new poly offering.

not really sure... cant tell from living room haha. it has to be extremely similar to the one he was using before or he wouldnt switch to it (if he actually did switch)

I am figuring that it has to be a Poly. so it could be that new string Babolat is coming out with. I am pretty sure Nadal was trying it out as well in practice. He tossed it aside pretty quick though. Do you know what the name of this new babolat string will be ?? looks good, i am going to try one myself.

I am sure Roddick loved the string during the practice so he is now using it in a real match.. which means it has to be a high quality string,,, Roddick is very picky i heard..:)

It is not that he is so picky. he is a muscle bound He-man, so he cannot use any string with any kind of real power. he can only use very thick strings with very low muted power.

babolat141
06-24-2008, 07:18 PM
Nadal has gotten his rackets strung at 54 for his whole life i heard. well he still uses a 1st generation poly and hasnt switched so i bet hes picky. I think any pro is picky

pfchang
06-24-2008, 07:21 PM
he's got too much power and add that with his APDC which still provides a fair amount of pop for a pro racket. he can't handle PHT
yeah, he actually uses duralast, which i'm sure everyone knows, so TW is lying on their site. but then again, it's all for profit

Yes, it is true that Pros are particular about their strings, as they have greatest effect on what their ball does...

You forget the average consumer!
the people that pay for their strings don't have anywhere near the sensitivity as a pro.

They are recreational players that like to have the "Look" of a pro.

Doesn't it make sense that Babolat has:
Pro Hurricane- Blue
Pro Hurricane Tour- Yellow
and Mystery "hurricane"- Red

when Babolat makes racquets that are:
Pure Drive- Blue
Aero Pro Drive- Yellow
Aero Storm &Pure Storm Tour- !!!!!RED!!!!

They are just giving consumer a chance to color coordinate.

The poster That said Roddick was using "Patriotic" colors was on the Money.


If it is just another poly can't you see Nadal with Yellow (Duralast)Mains&
Red "Mystery hurricane" crosses.
It would look like the Spanish Flag.

Plenty of people would put that together for the "Look"

Just my "educated guess."

guys - this is a new version of Pro Hurricane Babolat is producing that Roddick tested out and prefers for grass court tennis (it's supposed to be a little bit softer). You'll probably see him switch back to his normal string setup after Wimbledon is finished.

She certainly does, or at least thats what the packaging says. I did 2 racquets for her yesterday. Tensions were 29/30kgs & 29.5/30.5kgs and she still sent another rqt back while playing. The tension was then 30/31kgs.

Are you kidding me? PHT goes dead in a few hours. If it just lasts longer, then it'll be the worst feeling out there. Also, you'll just end up using 100's to cut out a bunch of strings.

Gotta love the ignorant kids on these boards. First of all Tecnifibre is well known for making one of-if not the best strings out there. Secondly, Babolat does not care what strings Roddick uses, as long as everyone thinks he uses Babolat. It's possible it's new Babolat string, but not obvious in any way at all.

They are under contract to put the Babolat stripes on their strings, and to use Babolat racquets, or at least paint them to look Babolat. Nobody can identify strings from the stands, all that matters is that on sites like this it says Babolat under these players names.

According to a little bird I spoke to, it is supposed to be a "revolutionary" poly. He wouldn't tell anything else.


yeah right... "revolutionary" and Roddick got his ***** kicked in the second round... and even went back to his old strings...what a joke... stay away from this stuff guys...

The fact that it didn't work for Roddick doesn't mean that it couldn't work for you or me.

I'm surprised you thought that Roddick actually had a shot at winning Wimbledon considering the top three players right now are at another level than the rest; and that includes the already-eliminated Djokovic.

Roddick has been a joke for a long time now. Lets not blame the strings, especially without trying them first.

fair enough... I agree with everything you say... BUT Roddick sucks and so do those strings...:) nevertheless so does my buddy Blake... I am so dissapointed with their early exits, no one expected them to go all the way. but leaving this early in the game??? cmon now... I see K-Fed being "handed" the championship... what a joke... at least make the man work for it... nothing like a free ride... maybe Nadal will hassle him a bit...

why keep blaming roddick's, and other players performances on strings??.. the balls only make contact with the string for a fraction of a second.. who the hells got time to waste talking about sheeps guts here?!?!.. you have a racket and you hit a ball.. if you're not good enough then you're gonna lose.. so you have to get better. you're not gonna get better if you spend more time blabbing about another player who has a completely different style of play to you and, more importantly, a string that isn't even out yet anyway, than actually practising on the court?? :S

Sorry, but this is the INTERNET: where people are allowed to talk about everything and anything without needing to give any justifications.

Accept it. Embrace it. And move on.

I heard Nadal is even more "picky" than Roddick. Can anyone confirm this?yea, hes picky about his butt...That's funny!

If that new string is stiffer -- it might be The Wire -- Babolat Duralast -- just colored in red.

People like you are funny. Everytime you type of people get called out, you have this fantasy land where you're a pro, are extremely rich, etc. In other words, stop your lying or atleast provide evidence.

Better stop hanging around the forum and practice my first appearance in the US Open.

Saw this

i started playing when i was 13.. i dont think i started too late.. i found out i had a natural serve and it goes in over 120 most of the time on first serves.. fastest is 136.. i also found out that coming into net is basically the equal of suicide for me.. so i make sure im right back most of the time but im improving all the time at net

i have to admit.. having a naturally good power game has made a nice base for me, so i only have to really work on net play now and volleys.. my baseline game is technically sound

So Sir Andy, may I ask how old are you. Playing in a "Junior Grand Slam" meaning for you kids and you just started at 13 yrs old uh huh

I actually play quite often. But you wouldn't know anything about that, would you? :oops:


Great posts!
