    thanks Rick for the answer. I am doing great, what about you? Playing tennis?

    What does Baghdatis string with? Just curious, I am still playing with my old M-Speeds Pro # 1 :)

    Brought them back alive not long ago;

    Frido, nice frames. :)

    marcos uses alu power and vs gut.

    I'm playing about twice a week when I have time and my back holds up. Lately, back has been healthy and I have no tournaments so been playing quite a bit.



    PS: congrats to the guys at P1. All 4 mens semi-finalist at Wimbledon are clients, so they once again are working overtime, and giving breaks to the wimbledon stringing team. I have been asked to join the team this year at Cincy, so looking forward to it.

    (Federer, Joker, Raonic, Dimitrov)

    I guess being a good stringer is the answer?

    Interesting how only Roger's racquets have the P1's leather grip.

    Those P1 grips are awesome. Thanks for posting the photo. Looks like Stan, Roger, Grigor, and Monfils frames.

    It's a major tease to see those P1 grips! In my opinion they are the best I have ever used.

    Have used one and I agree they are really good. One of the better leather grips I've used. I believe they are on the thinner side and therefore give better feel for the bevels. Any thoughts on this??

    I agree, definitely on the thinner side. Not the softest but it has great feel because of how thin it is.

    Hi Drakulie
    I was in RG player's lounge yesterday night and I saw Severin Lüth giving Nate all Federer racquets to be strung again for today's rematch against Monfils
    Seems like you had some work all night long :)
