^^ They're the little things between the main and cross strings, on Federer's 4th and 6th cross from the top.

wow. usually those type of pics have them holding a non-match racquet. here you can see the string savers, gut mains and lux crosses. looks like it came right out of his bag.

i dunno i read somewhere that pros tend to hit higher in the frameThat's true. Especially when hitting topspin the pros hit a lot of balls toward the top half of the string bed. Look at where the pro's stencils wear off first--it's almost always toward the top.

now all you need to see is his Power Pads.. they are actually listed on the E bay. I guess they wanted to keep those out of the picture since most people don't know what they are. If you know about string savers you probably have at least heard of Power Pads though..or you should.
Actually, I used to use string savers and I've never heard of power pads. What are they?

No he doesn't, but he does use "power pads." Basically leather stripes at bottom grommet loops.
