I think Radek Stepanek still does.

I know Serena recently changed from all gut to a hybrid, but I believe Venus still playes with all gut unless she changed too.

Steps switched to a gut/poly hybrid a few years ago.

I believe Llodra still uses full gut though.

Haas kept at it for a long time. I remember a YouTube vid of him mumbling too himself about these stupid kids cheating using poly while he plied his trade with full gut. Loved it... Think haas is a legend.

one of the bryan brothers (can't remember which one) uses full gut. the other one uses a hybrid (poly/gut).

On another note, Paola Suarez still uses a full bed of Prince Tournament Nylon.

Both were back to gut/poly at the ATP Tour Finals.

He is retired. So that does not count.

Courier Gosen OG custom, it was different, harder than the OG that is still around. He now crosses SG with poly in his Donnays.

A bit OOT... Jim Courier's Gosen syngut was anything but a cheapo.... it was in fact an amazing string... pity that Gosen discontinued it :(

Well....No. There are pros now that still use it - Llodra etc - see above.

And Haas just switched in the last year or so to a hybrid from full gut.

Not sure about these days, but I remember Tommy Haas using a full gut set up strung at a very high 72 lbs. It's probably what contributed to all those shoulder surgeries.

I was watching Venus' match y'day and she seems to be back to full gut setup
