Three out of the top four use a gut/luxilon hybrid:
Fed: flexible control stick wilson nk 6one 95, wilson gut (made at same factory as vs) main/alu power rough 1.25mm 47/45 flexible control oriented stick 355-357g
Nadal: Duralast painted to look like hurricane tour, apd, 332-334g 54-52lbs. 7 pts head heavy with 15 g at 12, and 5 g at butt cap.
Murray: head tgk 238.1 flexible stick alu power main, vs gut cross 364g swing wt of 404g, head flexible control stick.
Djokovic: head flexible control stick, vs main/alu power 1.25mm stick, 360g. 61.5/59.4lbs.
Davydenko: 03, poly star energy
Delpo: flexible control stick wilson nk 6one 95, alu power 1.25mm 62/62, 361g.
Tsonga: babolat, hurricane tour black string, mass? tension?
Simon: head flexible stick, head nylon, 55/53
Roddick: bablolat, hurricane tour/vs gut 62/62
monfils: prince, luxilon alu 1.25mm 57/55

Seems like the top pros use gut main/alu power cross with control sticks, flexible,with silicone injected into the handle, and lead under the headguards, around 360g.

I thought Fed used a 90 too. And I thought Nadal's stick was around 2pts HL.

I'm not sure if you're describing the frame or the string here, but the Wilson k Factor 6.1 is anything but flexible.

Fed's frame is not stock stiffness, drill points, or mass. I believe it is not the listed 67, but more like a 63.

That may be true. I think murray strings at 60-62lbs, with bde gut.

According to nikeup, with pics as proof, Murray uses alu mains, and vs team crosses at 60/58 as of 12/09. So the log was right. See nikeup pics of murrays stick: PT57A pj to look like youtek.

i own a few of his used racquets did some customizing for him before wimbledon. its definetly a tgk 231.3 pattern is 16x19 length is 27in. uses 16g babolat gut on the mains and alu power on the cross.

Another top pro using vs gut mains, and alu power cross, with a flexy stick: ra 65 or so. The answer to the soul of the racquet is staring us in the face: Gut mains, and alu power 1.25mm crosses. Although Murracker is using the other way around, alu mains, and vs crosses, just like a lot of clay courters.

He's been known to show up with duralast, imprinted with pht on the string, but with the tell tale translucence that proves it's duralast.

There is a separate part of the forum dedicated to the discussion of Pro's equipment. The various pro's sticks have already been discussed to death in there.

You'd be best off reading the various threads as the information you've posted is either nothing new or inaccurate. :)

I made a correction on that, blx 90. Tough to keep up with fed's new sticks. Linguistics: Def> the endless redescription of things already discussed in new and old ways. Ten thousand years from now, they will be discussing which force field so and so was using at wimbledon, and whether a human will ever beat a cyborg at tennis ever again.

I saw the sticker on the inside of his throat. Most say pt57a, 16x19 drill pts.
