    ^^ They're the little things between the main and cross strings, on Federer's 4th and 6th cross from the top.

    wow. usually those type of pics have them holding a non-match racquet. here you can see the string savers, gut mains and lux crosses. looks like it came right out of his bag.

    That's true. Especially when hitting topspin the pros hit a lot of balls toward the top half of the string bed. Look at where the pro's stencils wear off first--it's almost always toward the top.

    Actually, I used to use string savers and I've never heard of power pads. What are they?

    No he doesn't, but he does use "power pads." Basically leather stripes at bottom grommet loops.
