Sounds arrogant, but use the search button :)

Has been up in here several times.

Djokovic used to use X1, but no longer does.

Frankly I can't think of any player, who uses X1 - but 50% of all Atp players use som sort of Luxilon poly, either full job or as hybrid with nat gut.

Most popular Luxilon poly still by far is Alu Power, then Alu Rough, Big Banger original, Ace and Timo and M2.

Most popular natty gut by far is Babolat VS.

Some use the nat gut in the mains (fed, djok, hewitt) som use it in the crosses (a rod, mur-red-****, caro woz) and a few use full nat gut (serena, venus, llodra, clisters, clement) and many male pro players use full job of alu power/rough (soderling, blake, berdych, wawrinka, gonzalez, anderson etc. etc.)

Other popular polys among the pros are Babolat Pro Hurricane (Tour) (a rod), Babolat Revenge (caro woz) and Techifibre Redcode (Isner).

Luxilon Big Banger Original is still very popular on tour - Verdasco uses it for instance.

Do a search and you find the rest of the info ;)

Tsonga is back to full alu. Gulbis full alu. But they only use it for half an hour.

Tsonga in matchplay for half an hour is far more use than many of us playing an entire match :D

In a video interview that I recently saw, Tipsy said that he hybrids X1 with Red Code.
