Does Baghdatis still use Technifibre Biphase at 60 pds tension?

Did Djockovic use in the past this string in full bed and at what tension?:

Does any other pro use it?

Not sure about Baghdatis.
But I think Djokovic did because think.. no pro wouldn't get a string that's not Tecnifibre (which djoko didn't even endorse at that time) and stick a Teccy stencil on there, right?

Djokovic used to use it. I do not think Baghdatis ever used it before.

As far as Sprem, not sure.

But I am just as curious as the OP as to which pro's have used or currently use X1B either in a hybrid or full.

I watched a video a couple of years ago where Tipsarevic said he used Biphase.

Baghdatis is listed as using Luxilon Alu Power and VS Gut in the stringing logs I have seen. He even used to have the double line on his Fischer racquets for the Babolat Gut he uses in the hybrid.

Tipsarivec uses technifibre black code 1.24.

Pretty sure Isner uses a hybrid of redcode and xone.

Isner uses Pro Line 2.

He changed back in 2008.

He used to use a hybrid of Redcode & X-1 in red

Isner uses Pro Line 2.

Has he changed then? He used to use full Redcode. IMO PL2 is better.


Gisel Dulko uses full X-1

Elena Baltacha used to use it; don't know if she still does now. Had it at 63lbs when I strung for her.

No. It's natural Gut and Luxilon Alu Power.

Bab VS team 16 I'm guessing?
And alu 17?

wiki needs you vs :) when I read it I thought maybe he'd changed again - doh !!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Novak_Djokovic

"Djokovic uses Head rackets, utilizing the first Head YouTek™ Speed Pro racquet, after using Wilson until the end of 2008. In the Australian Open 2011 uses for the first time the new YouTek™ IG Speed MP 18/20 with Innegra™ fibre technology. Djokovic strings in a custom hybrid consisting of Tecnifibre X-One Biphase String in his mains (a type of synthetic gut), and natural gut in his crosses"

No, I was wrong. 46/51 is the tension Bagdhatis used before changing to Lux/gut. Fabrice Santoro was the one who used 60 pds.:)
