i have no idea about the amount of lead tape but as far as his tension I believe it is at 68lbs.

Exactly. Not enough to help him win.

I used to be his biggest fan. After driving for hours to Cinci this summer and watched him throw a match on purpose, I will never root for him again. Who cares how much he uses, his career is over.

No, he skipped the AO2011 because he wasn't granted a wildcard and he didn't want to go through qualifying. Unless he starts playing better soon, his career is pretty much done. I think he's ranked in the 100s now. Too bad, I always tried to root for him.

68 lbs. racquet weighs approx 370 grams, and has a boat load of lead at 3 and 9.
