    From the Pro Equipment Logs above it seems Hewitt was the first male pro to use gut main with bb alu power in the cross, as Federer has just dont this over the last year. It also seems Hewitt does not have any change the lbs since the bb cross will lose more tension or it might have to due with his frame.

    Interesting.

    Im going to try this.
