    I saw these players up VERY close on my 50 inch plasma during this Aussie Open and here is my 110% observations:

    Roger Federer: Gut Mains, Alu (Rough) crosses
    Andy Murray: Alu Power Mains, Gut crosses
    Marin Clic: Gut Mains, Alu Power (Rough) crosses

    Post yours :)

    I thought Davydenko strings around the low to mid 40lb region, with the top five crosses strung about 5% - 10% lower.

    See tennis magazine January/Feb 2010 issue (may be on tennis.com) article The Pros' Biggest Secret. The article shows Player/Racquet/String/Tension (includes main/crosses and tensions for both) for the major men and women players.

    eg. Andy Murray: Head YouTek Radical Pro/Babolat VS Team Gut/Luxilon Big Banger Alu Power/ 56

    Roger Federer: Wilson K Factor K Six One Tour 90/Wilson Natural Gut/Luxilon big Banger Alu Rough/ 50/47.

    Geeze, James Blake strings at 68 lbs! That added control doesn't seem to be helping. He should string at 58 lbs and see how much pace he could get. And maybe that new Wilson BLX 90 he switched to will help him with control.
