Can we just sticky all the threads about Rafael Nadal's actual setup? It seems like someone posts a new thread about it everyday.

^^ diameter of the string.

15L, 16, 16L, 17, 17L, 18... etc if there are any others that i've never heard of. 15L is bigger that 16, which is bigger than 16L, etc...

1,35 is 15l, 1,40 would be 15...

according to Babolat I think they still claim Roddick actually uses the Pure Drive GT Roddick Plus as well as the Pro Team OG, if they don't claim that anymore they certainly did for a while.
