WTF?? 48 lbs?
Last year's clay season, in a changeover, he asked for a racquet to re-string, and asked for 66 lbs. I heard it with my own ears :D

I heard him during the clay court masters series on TV and he asked for it 56/58 so he obviously changes his setup significantly depending on the variables

I have also heard that fernando strings low. I was watching one match on clay when he was playing tursunov(i think), and he said that he wanted to string at 48 or 45. The person said kgs, and he replied "pounds"
