some mobile upload from stringer room
Interesting stuff. Thanks for sharing.
did not manage to watch Baghdatis game but really would like to know which Fischer he uses.. my bet old Vacuum Pro MP (Kafelnikov)...
Thank you very much, great to know what they are using and what tension.
I string like Falla.
Wow. Tsonga strings at 34/29. That's quite a tension difference.
Cool stuff. Thanks!
I wonder how Kukushkin can use 18/18 kg? That barely under 40# of tension.
X-Man keeps it old school.
I think thats 31/29, looking at the other 1s.
Europeans tend to draw long accents on their number 1s. A generalisation I know, but my parents do it, and whenever I've noticed this style I've noted it's come from a European. I quite like it. Also love the 9s with their lowercase g-like descenders.
31/29, not 34/29
32/32 kg is over 70 pounds. How does Peya still have an arm?
Alexander Peya still old school too. Knows pain is such an important thing in life. A player should experience suffering.
Only 3 players using RPM.
Very cool picture! 3 players using VS/Alu hybrid, and one with the VS/RPM Blast hybrid, very interesting stuff.
I don't think he ever really switched from this frame. I still have several of these; it is a great racquet, in my opinion.
While it's still on the higher side he did go down some kilo's, a few years ago he strung around 37kg (81lbs)
Keep in mind he doesnt use a poly but a high end multi which is veryyyyy elastic...
Thanks for posting, interesting stuff.
I thought that some of those players were with priority 1.
Or does the tourney get string info just incase?
Priority One provides stringing at the 4 majors and the 1000 Master series.
no, I did a snapshot of that in stringer block. That list is what actually stringers have been done..
Funny, I have the picture from 2004, it looks practically identical, those guys still have the same pens and sheets
Hmm, and many players from 2004 still are in the new list!
Pretty interesting racket stats:
2004 James Blake was at 68 lbs !!
Must be clay, pretty loose for JB.
baghdatis reversed his main/cross setup huh?
I remember he used to have ALU power in the mains and VS in the crosses.
Also ditched the VS overgrip, using wilson pro now..
Even with the gut/poly hybrids doesnt seem to be the tension variance between the mains and crosses that a lot of the users here on the boards use.
Is that consistent with what you saw at Delray?
I think it's interesting to see how Dunlop is has no racquet representation in 2012 which sucks to me because I love my Dunlops. Also, to see the rise of Babolat and Wilson taking prominence from Head. It's kind of crazy to see just how popular Babolat has become is so relatively short a time.
Great job getting that pic.
Thanks for shareing
What you guys should be looking at is ALU P ROUGH at 30kg... 66+ pounds, in a babolat as well, idk who d.brown is but from a google image search its in an APD... OUCH.
That's on clay. On faster or indoor courts he tends to use 32kg!
And if you look beyond the top 50 Babolat's start to dominate even more.....go to any of the qaulies and the first few rounds in singles and doubles and I would say its almost 50% Babolat.

Pass the Dutchie behind the back, Mon
OP, thanks for posting the pic. Great stuff.
Tommy Haas, copying my setup again...
