    I've got a list from a stringer at the Nasdaq 100 this year, of 66 of the ATP players; what racquets they use, what string for mains, what string for x's and the tension. If you want me to send you the file, email me at:

    Just checked my inbox, 15 messages already. I can get lists from other tournaments too, what do you want? (not too recent, he didn't do the french but he did the AO and others)

    [turn on sarcasm]

    This is SUCH a coincidence. This is exactly the same list that appears on www.racquettech.com, the first public source of this information. The same capitalization, the same alphabetical order, everything. Wow.

    [turn off sarcasm]

    If you are going to copy the work of others, it is considered polite to give credit.

    Dude, c'mon, don't post copyrighted material on an open message board.

    If people want to see the lists, they can join the USRSA like everybody else. That's not cool Daniel to post the lists and then not give credit, it's not cool to post it period.

    Racquet Tech magazine gets these lists from several sources, and reformats the information for publication. There is absolutely no way that any one person -- even your nameless friend -- could have provided this information to you independent of the USRSA.
