Just checked with a friend that will be working there, and he told me that it's the same Wilson ProStaff 90" .

He spoke with Fed a little and he told him that he's using lower tensions and a different cross string? - but no more details...

Let me get in touch later and I will try to get more info.

I got yer back hewex. It does kinda look like a 95. All you 95ers will never give up. I know its hard to believe, but a 95 would definitely hurt his game. I mean, would most of you like to play with a 110? Didnt think so.

I imagine he'd always use lower tensions once they moved onto clay. It's no secret really. The strings however - he probably tries new stuff from Wilson often in practice.

True and many player will drop the natural in their hybrids since it does not holdup as well on the dirt.

If any one can tell the difference between 5sq inchs from a picture, then you should be doing better in life!

Any player in a MS main draw is not too concerned about durability, rather performance. It is how they earn $$$ and rankings points. For those putting the nattie in the mains (Fed, Djokovic), a switch to poly main/gut cross is more plausible than jettisoning the gut altogether. To that point, years ago RSI magazine listed player set-ups and accidentally flipped the entry on Fed at FO. When asked, Nate Ferguson explained that wasn't the case. Fed always plays Gut M/ALU RoughX.
