    My guess is that these three (amongst other players) have their racquets strung privately, and not by the tournament service.

    Dent strings at 43 lbs?! Really? Wow, I like it...

    Yes, correct, they are stringing privately with Priority 1, not Star Stringing.

    Thanks a lot.
    So is Nadal really with RPM Blast or it is a different black string??
    Would you be able to provide the women's as well?
    And did you remember what gauge was Zverev's Hyperion?

    I can only speculate about Nadal's string...I did see it up close and it did have the hexagonal texture, so I can only assume it really is RPM Blast. I can't remember Zverev's gauge, like I said, if I didn't post it, I probably don't know.

    I do have access to the women's log, but it is a lot of trouble to copy and paste it all on here and I don't think many people are as interested in it. If you want to find out about someone in particular, I will take requests and post them in this thread.

    Vbranis,
    thanks a lot for all the info posted.
    Some people in these threads here have said or were speculating Nadal uses 1.35 gauge,but you put as 16g so that question is answered
    I don't know if Sharapova played there,but if you have her data I'd like to know her set up and Dementieva,Stosur,Ivanovic,Jankovic's.

    Is that right, that Simon plays his IntelliTour in 16 (1,30mm) and not in 17 (1,23mm)?

    This is a real testament to the durability of polyester strings. 1.10 is about as thin as any string made.

    Interesting, thanks a lot.

    Seems like Stepanek was trying to play with his set-up a bit. I seem to recall he used to play with full gut. Pacific, I think.

    I wonder if that had to do with him starting to slip down the rankings and performing quite poorly, which eventually ended up with him taking a two-month break from tennis.

    Is that right, that Gilles Simon plays usually the IntelliTour with 16G and not 17G?

    Yes, unless there was a mistake when writing it down (highly unlikely, but I suppose possible)

    Why a mistake, because in a other tread he plays usually 17G?

    Use Simon 16G or 17G, please find the correct tension?

    Thanks

    It was the same string that Stosur is using?
    Comparing the two we can see if Nadal is really playing with RPM Blast

    Babolat Star 3, 4, and one 5.

    I will take specific requests, honestly, I just don't have time to post the entire thing.

    EDIT: I will try to post the setups of some of the more notable WTA players when I have time, sometime today or tomorrow :)

    You need first to learn English and interpret better phrases and the sentences.He already said it 5 times on this thread.I think we had enough of the same question.Whatever Vbranis posted here is what Simon uses.Thanks for letting the thread develop itself.

    If she wanted spin she could've used RPM or PHT, maybe they're worried about her arm?

    Sorry for my "bad" english, my first language ist german :)

    I have ask a german professional stringer and he answered me that "Simon" does play the IntelliTour in 16g (1,30mm).

    Sorry for the question, because in a other tread have user say, that Simon plays 17g.

    No she could use Signum Pro Plasma Hextreme,MSV Heptatwist,MSV Focus Hex,or WeissCannon Turbo twist.These are really good strings,but they are too stubborn to accept small companies making great strings with high tech.

    Thanks for uploading the info, interesting stuff.

    If that tension for Nalby is right he's changed things a fair bit, used BBO at 64lbs before I think.

    Also interesting to note how many players are still using an early poly like BBO.

    Yes, he seems to go lower every year, last year he was stringing BBO at 53 lbs, now down to 50.

    Yes, it was the same packaging, though I can't remember Stosur's gauge. Like I said earlier, Nadal's string appeared to be hexagonal in shape just like the real RPM. But I didn't have time to compare his to another RPM side-by-side when I had the chance...

    Anyway, my money is that Nadal's string really is RPM Blast, although I can't confirm it 100%

    Thank you very much. But it can be Pro Huricane tour black too. Because it has the same shape as RPM.
    Could you check it next time you string to Rafa and post?
