    I saw a close up of his stick and the strings looked like alu power. He was using poly force extreme. Has he also switched from the pt57e to the tgk models?

    Interesting, I knew of his changed from Pacific Poly Force to Alu Power, and also his change from Tournagrip to Wilson Pro Overgrip.
    But if he has changed from the PT57 to the TGK that is really interesting. Looks like pro's actually like the new Microgels as I remember Safin switched over to the TGK as well.

    I'm pretty sure he's still using a PT57E, but many of the Prestige Mid series users are switching to TGK's.

    During his recent tennis channel match, I saw a white strip on the throat of his stick.

    I don't think that it's wilson pro actually, because if you look at the pics, there is HEAD Finishing tape. I imagine that if he used Wilson pro, he would just have black electrical tape, then again, I can't be sure...

    What, pray tell, might the significance of a white strip be...
