The latest TENNIS magazine has a list of pros and their string choice and tensions. Hope this helps!

Are you talking about the racquettech page?

That got taken down and/or relocated, unfortunately.

Some of these numbers are completely outdated,Davydenko uses his rackets with 40Lbs,and the top 5 strings lower a pound as they go up.
But expected most pros using tensions in mid 50's and low 60's as they can generate a lot of power themselves with a lot of control.

yeah, I knew he strung tight, but 75lb with ALU must be like hitting the ball with and iron board. :-)

I wouldn't take that website very seriously at all. Some of the strings and tensions are correct but there are a lot of specs that are blatant errors.
Things such as Federer stringing at 55/52 lbs. with the BLX, when it is pretty common knowledge that he has been stringing around 21/19.5 kg or around 46 lbs on the mains lately.
Also, in the case of Tommy Haas, he isn't even using Alu Power. He switched a while ago from Full Natural Gut, to Natural Gut/Big Banger Ace. His tension in the lower 60's if I remember correctly.

^^^ I agree.

Somewhere else I found:
Haas - gut + Lux.Ace 59/54
Federer - Gut + Rough 21/19.5 (kilo)
Stepanek - all gut 62/59
Isner - Technifibre red code 68/68 !!

Is Federer playing 21/19.5 kilo's for real???
I always thought he played about 26/25 kilo's..

But it says on the chart he uses Isospeed at 75lbs. When did he change the tension?
