    I cant confirm this, but I think he strings low, and that his brother strings his racquets for him on a cheesy drop weight stringer they travel with. maybe someone in the know can confirm. i dont know which string. maybe i just made this all up, but i seem to recall hearing this. .....;O

    I heard that their stringing machine broke during last year's French Open and his brother was forced to hand-pull all his frames. I guess it was a nasty situation, the two of them in a hotel room with david screaming "pull" and "harder" at the top of his lungs.

    They probably thought "those guys are probably stringing a racket using their bare hands because their stringer broke even though in an episode of Three's Company I would have said they're having ho mosexual intercourse."
