Hmm. Works for me.
Let's just say that as far as the rackets listed on that site, it is what the manufacturer wants people to think the pros are playing with.

interesting how melzer strings at 75 lbs. must be an arm killer

Andy Roddick Babolat Pure Drive Roddick
Babolat RPM Blast/Babolat VS Team 73/61lbs

Quite a difference in tension between mains and crosses!

FYI, a lot of the information on this site is wrong...

Agree this guy might not be very reliable. He has Baghdatis using the 315 Speedflex, though anyone with a pair of eyes can see he uses the older 315 based on the Fischer frame. A stringer who can't see thorugh a paintjob is of dubious value here.

You said the information was incorrect. Where can I find accurate information?

The best advice I can give you is to find a person who strings on the tour. Sometimes good info can be found here if you look up the posts made by a user by the name of "jura".

not sure if it's 100% accurate but USRSA has equipment logs from many tournies and the tension #'s seem to be believable. Amazing to see the evolution of strings and tension among the pro's.

yea about half of the info on that site is incorrect. aside from the racquets that the pros are using (i can only assume that he just wanted to state the pj's that he saw and not guess/reveal whats under the paint), but a lot of the string info is also incorrect.

for example:
baghdatis uses champions choice, not tecnifibre x-1 biphase
canas used kirschbaum super smash before experimenting with lux, not enduro tour
coria always used lux bbo, not toalson
gasquet uses lux bbo, not alu power
gonzo always used lux alu power, not pro hurricane
haas uses vs touch, not alu
ljubicic uses timo and vs touch, not pro hurricane


you'll find all the accurate info here:
