    He's been changing it every couple of years, I think it was around 2007 it was strung with Alu Power or something around 54 lbs. Then at another tournament he switched to like 56 lbs. Not too surprised that he moved up the tension at Shanghai because of the hard court season, but I'm wondering why he didn't go up at the U.S Open or earlier.

    Different opponent, different temperature, and most importantly...different surface.

    At Wimbledon he was stringing at around 42-44lbs with Luxilon Original, or a hybrid on Original & ALU Power.

    Mmm,but strange there's a difference of about 16lbs. That's a big difference even considering differing climates.
