    Hi,

    I saw that he was using a Babolat stencil and wondered what string he uses.

    Any ideas?

    It's VS Gut, but I'm not sure if he hybrids it with something else or not, but probably not because both mains and x's look the same.

    Er, it's VS 130, except on clay which is Polymono 130.

    agreed, I can't believe a pro uses polymono

    Actually, quite a few use polymono. Though Babolat at the open last year was trying to get many to move over to Hurricane.
