I think it is pretty cool that the stringing room has a bunch of windows where the fans can see inside the room. I'm not sure how much the stringers like being on display, but from a fan's perspective, it is probably pretty sweet.

The only pro events I've attended are the Cincy Masters Series and the women's Tier III event also held in Cincy. At the Masters Series event, the stringing room (I think run by P1) is no where to be found - must be where the public is not allowed to roam. At the women's Tier III event, the "official" stringers were a couple of high school/college kids working in the vendor's tent. Not quite to the level of a room full of pro stringers on new Wilson Baiardos at a Grand Slam Event!

Thanks for the link to the pics. Take care.

I'm not sure what I would think if I saw people watching me string. :D
