it seems that the crosses are the same natural color as his gut mains and not his usual lux rough silver crosses. i might just be seeing things. sorry in advance in this topic has already been covered.

looks interesting. maybe Ron Yu can confirm if its all gut, maybe the new M2, or a weird picture.

Crosses look pretty gray to me which is same color as lux. Mains looks like a gut to me.

I dont see anything different.

In the second picture the crooses look gray so nothing new there, but in the first one they look white. Is it possible that he has some racquets strung differently, trying new things maybe.

Still, this board has concluded that Federer needs a bigger racquet not different strings, I guess Federer is not listening, no?:)

Perhaps just a trick of the light?

I just want to say, I love his USO shoes in the second pic. Looks very distinct.

Federer is indeed using the new Luxilon super-secret string, code name....Assclown

Yes prolly just the light. See how bright it is on the first picture as supposed to the other one that seems to be a little darker (night match may be?). Anyway I don't see any other differences other than the color of the strings.

Kind of like how you think Safin is using some super-secret new Luxilon prototype yellow string, when Ron Yu, his personal stringer, says otherwise?

Owned (10 chars).

Same setup as usual.

Same strings, just 1 kilo less tension at MC than he used at IW and Miami.

No, AC are yellow and secretly strung on a frame when no one else knows about it

Same setup as usual.

First picture made it look like is could be something different, but this one ^^^ shows he's using the same as always.

Amendment noted and accepted. I stand corrected.

Let the record show that Assclown is only secretly strung on frames no one else, including the user, knows about. These frames are also secretly weighted with 20 ounce sword-shaped weights which takes any player and makes them a potential #1 in the world.

Let the record also show that currently the biggest user of the 20-ounce weight and Assclown is Serena Williams.
