They range from as low as 40 lbs to as high as 80 lbs. You'll have be more specific.

80!?:shock: I've seen Pete at 75lbs with gut.
Really you do not need to be concerned with what the pros are stringing at as it is of no value to you

Check the link. It's old (2003), but you get the basic idea. Monica Seles as I remember had the highest tension I'd ever heard of. At some tournaments she strung as high as 82lbs.

I think muster had strung his racquet very high as well, I believe 34 or more kilos!

Monica at 82? :o
Maybe it's a typo...

seles was known for her high tensions (38 kg), also muster (40 kg) and woodforde (40 kg). The highest i've ever seen was joshua eagle (double player), hold yours seats guys, 43 kg!!! :p i got these specs from technifibre, roland garros in 1996.
Ljubicic for number1

When Scud sent his racquet off for re stringing the other night against Sebastian I heard him tell the ball boy get this strung at 33kg with Babolat something or other. couldnt catch the exact string.
