Of course we are interestred.

Are those specs for unstrung frames? Don't you also have swingweights? :)

Yes unstrung weights, the list is pretty accurate.

could someone who is better at maths than me work out how many points head-light Gasquet's racquet is?

RICHARD GASQUET 349 GR 31.5 EQ 68.5 CM

Cheers :D

I had no idea so many pros used extended length racquets.

Thanks for sharing.

^^^Same, not counted them up but perhaps even a majority of them are over 27in. Some like Rochus use a 28in plus frame. Interesting, someone should start a TT poll about posters' frame sizes perhaps. Presumably the vast majority use 27s.

But the vast majority of the grand slam winners are using or used standard length rackets, Federer, Nadal, Sampras, Agassi, Becker, etc...

Was that strung? Some of them are quite low almost like it was unstrung or at least w/o overgrip

supasebinem
02-23-2010, 05:41 AM
all the specs are unstrung! (add 18 to 22gr for the strung weight, depending on the string type/pattern) .will post the rest soon, stay tuned

WOW so Ancic played with 386 gr club that is insane...

No it's an indoor ATP Tournament, infact the court is a Taraflex synthetic surface.

these are unstrung weights? no 13oz sticks here....

no fed stick, none of the p1 players use the site stringing service...except for wawrinka in this case. not sure why

ivo

Are these weights also without overgrip?

Thanks.

RICHARD GASQUET 349 GR 31.5 EQ 68.5 CM8.7 pt HL unstrung

Volandri's string tension is 15 kg (33 lb)... wow. Makes my elbow happy just to read that.

PurePrestige
02-27-2010, 02:41 PM
Gasquet's racket is actually 27.5 inch, not 27inch (68.5cm).
Unstrung balance is closer to 11pts headlight, strung is around 8pts headlight. :)

do you have the swingweights in addition to the static weight?

Would I be right to assume that OHB players are purposely going down a size on their grip?

Well it makes sense. Kuerten used to use a grip 3 (with 2 tournagrips over the bare handle), so his grip was very small. I find with bigger grips, its very difficult to get enough wrist into the shot to generate angles particularly if your using a SW 1hbh grip. I also find my slice backhands are alot more penetrating. Of course, this is not the same for all players. I believe Dimitrov uses a grip 4/5 with overgrip!!.

Just wondering if JC Ferrero's racquet spec has changed when he retired? Or does it still remain the same? Could you provide more details if you have some? Also what was his grip size preference and overgrip? Thanks
