Guys, anyone knows what Ferrero is using in its POG LB 100 (strings and tension for clay matches)?

And what is his grip size.

thanks

I have seen in some previous threads that it is Luxilon Big Banger Original at 53/51.

I remember some official sheet from the 2003 USO that he was playing big banger original, but tension was close to 60 lbs back then.

Yep i'm sure pro's are always choping and changing. Surface, balls, weather, altitiude, environment etc can affect a pro player so i'm sure they are always adjusting.

Normally around the 24/22 kgs mark but will go up or down depending on weather or balls.
All the best,
Richard

How do you change your setup depending on type of tennis court and conditions?

I'm not sure, but if I'm not mistaking, with hotter weather or less humidity, the balls fly harder I believe, so to have more control you would have to have a little higher tension. With more humidity you could lower your tension for more power, because the balls don't go too fast.

But someone please correct me if I'm mistaking.
