From that photo, I would guess the T-W profile is only half correct. They claim he is using Lux ALU & Wilson nattie gut hybrid. He has obviously ditched the gray ALU in favor of all-gut or a gut/poly hybrid in a natural color. The reason at least half his string is still gut is the severe bowing of the center main strings. You would only get that from an elastic string like gut. My hunch, because he is a Wilson contract player, he's using Wilson nattie with either Lux M2 or Adrenaline/Adrenaline Rough, both of which come in a natural color. Just a guess though.

He switched back to a full bed of luxilon big banger original rough. He used this before last year when he made the switch to big banger alu power.

Wilson Natural Gut and Babolat VS Gut are the exact same string under varying packaging.

ALU Rough Mains/Wilson Natural Gut Crosses. Not sure about tension.

It's very plausible he went back to BB Original Rough if he used to play it but that is scary string movement for a 18x20 pattern in full poly. That's why I guessed the mains might be gut. Gut in its pristine out-of-the-package is a "natural" color, not clear. As it is installed and once it is played with, its "clouds" even more (where the string is pulled and clamped while stringing and where you hit the ball while playing). That picture is not clear enough to eliminate gut as a possibility.

He switched to the 16x18 last year.

Thanks for catching that... The original Yahoo photo looked very dense so I didn't count strings. Still awful scary how much bow that BBO main has. Tension must be very low.
