    is it still hybrid GUT/LUX or something new????
    question is based on fact that he is not using polyethylene package for each racket any more .....just a lot of sticks in the bag without any covers!

    I don't think priority one does stringing in Doha so maybe that's y he don't have any poly bags

    Federer is #1 gold client of P~1 - in this case one of the "priorityrists" travel along with Roger & other gold clients

    None of us are in Doha with any of the Priority One Gold Service clients. We all head down to Australia later this week.

    is this regular situation or exclusive this year?

    P1 I think just travels to masters 1000s and the grand slams and I think Basel

    Federer is probaly using the regular stringers like in estriol 08

    Roger is using the on-site stringing service in Doha. We don't traveling to some of the smaller events with him. We have been to Doha in the past, but not this year. I actually like to be home every now and then.

    I just read in Tennis Magazine that Roger is stringing his rackets at 50/47. Last I had heard it was 56/54. Any reason for the change?

    His choice or reference tension varies depending on playing conditions....

    ...does he still go +/- 0.5 kgs around a certain reference tension among the frames in his bag depending on the playing conditions?

    Fact

    It's not anywhere near near that high. Tennis Mag has it approximately right, but there's always a range. 22.5kg is upper range.
    Crosses are 1.5kg lower.
