i see that suggestion about getting racquet strung the same # of times per year as you play per week.... so play 4 times a week, get your racquet strung every three months... was wondering if that rule is applicable to 12 month play in southern climates or 6 month play in 4 season climates. wondering what are the main reasons to get racquet restrung, other than obvious string breakage. i understand that the tension decreases although apparently it does this quite rapidly so if you are extremely serious, get your racquet strung constantly or like federer, play 3 racquets per match. my KEY QUESTION though is in terms of topspin.... will the strings progressively give less topspin as they become more worn??? it seems to me the answer is yes, but i'm not sure. thanks in advance.
