    Maybe the tournamaent stringers are P1?
    We'll see if he is with them at the USO

    Tournament stringers are Wilson. I think Nate ran on-site once for a smaller tournie a while back, but it was a one off. I think Rafa will be good with P1.

    Pretty funny vid. :)

    If you recall, Federer use to have this same bag until P1 started having racquet bags made for him with the "RF" logo. Being that P1 had a surplus of the "P1" bags, Uncle Toni broke into the P1 store, and stole some bags for, Rafa.

    P1 did the tournament stringing in Cincinatti. I actually visited the stringing room too so I know that for a fact. I stopped by to talk to Ron about my racquets. He said its the only onsite gig they do all year.

    Rafael is having his racquets strung by the US Open stringers, Wilson. I saw him drop one off the other day. I'm sure the pic you saw was in Cincinnati, where P1 was the official stringer. Therefore, everyone would have P1 bags that week.

    Ah, yes that was a Cincinnati practice session, so that makes sense.

    A tennis.com article http://tennisworld.typepad.com/the_pro_shop/2009/08/on-to-the-open-gear-season.html refers to **** as Nadal's stringer, but could that, too, just be a case of his having his racquets strung at a tournament at which **** was the tournament's stringer? Somehow I don't imagine Nadal as a guy who'd use a traveling stringer such as P1 or ****, I see him as someone who'd just be content to use the on-site stringer, whoever that may be.
