    Which grip does Gasquet use for his forehand/backhand (Eastern)?

    As mentioned, not a hybrid; BB original @ 24/23kg as at Wimby. I know, as I strung his racquets.

    At first glance that leather looks like a head leather tour grip... can you give any opinions on this, uk_skippy?

    if u look at gasquets racquet u can see its not only his overgrip, the leather isnt on the very top either.

    i guess he wants to minimize the added weight at the grip. could be bc he likes a special balance or static weight etc

    I personally string on a Star 4, but at Wimby we use Prince 6000

    As of 5 minutes ago, I noticed that Gasquet's photo is not featured in the Head section of the Tennis Warehouse web site. Which is weird cause he's ranked #11 in the world.
    Maybe a glitch or...?

    Actually, it would be cool if he switched to Volkl or even Babolat. Playing that painted-over liquid metal is getting old.
