The actual setups weren't listed so there's not much I can do. *shrug*.

Thanks for the info. I'm assuming most of it was poly or co-poly.

I'm guessing much of the Babolat was. I saw plenty of packages RPM Blast.

Any of them sponsored? Solinco has been giving a lot strings at a few events.

I'm surprised they make the players list what strings they use. Is there a list of racket brands too? I'm willing to bet most have Babolat or Wilson (PS or BLX), and maybe a few Head Radicals (all series).

Almost all are at least partially sponsored for strings and racquets. Many players do have full string and racquet sponsorship.

We don't make them fill it out. We just give to them as part of their medical release form they fill out. Most do fill it out. It is helpful to the players who may not have full sponsorships as mfg's (I believe) can review the information as well as the players/parents can network at the tournament and set up things for themselves. Here's the racquet thread I started too...

I'm sure most of those kids don't really know what kind of strings they are using .. their parents and/or coaches do it all for them..

Maybe, with the exception of RPM Blast. It's sad how many people use that string, just because Nadal does...

Surprised solinco is on the list???? I'm surprised more juniors aren't using solinco strings. Solinco strings are siick and the tennis world is starting to catch onto this. Solinco is going to be the next luxilon... Yep, I said it. Just wait and see

Would be nice to see exactly the break down of strings within each brand as well...I'm assuming the tour bite is probably the most prevalent solinco string tho

Not surprised...They have been giving out samples at most tournaments and giving partial sponsorship to almost any junior that applies.
