I'm fairly certain Federer's sticks for the final tomorrow are being strung by Nate Ferguson and Ron Yu of Priority1. Just curious... Does Nadal have his own personal stringer/stringing company? If so, who? RPNY?

Or does he use the official Wimbledon stringing team?

I'm sure someone in his entourage does it for him.

I was wrong. According to the following thread, they use tournament stringers.

Roger Dalton has strung for Nads for the 2 weeks at SW19. I got to do both Williams sisters for the final with an early start to get them done.
All the best,
Richard

Richard - Thanks for the info. Very cool that you got to string the Williams' racquets! I've read many of your informative posts on GSS - didn't know you trolled these boards as well. Great to see that you .

Take care.

wow, really? i thought for some reason that his racquet was balanced further up the handle, and weighed more..hmm.

Richard,

This makes Nadal's racket one of the lightest on tour. Does the weight include lead and is it true that his actual grip size is 4 1/4?

This is pretty much a stock Aero Pro Drive, isn't it?

Edit. (sorry, didn't read these were unstrung specs)
