Wow! "Vasalisa Bardina of Russia strings hers at 80 pounds." What racket and strings does she use? Hitting with a racket strung at 80 lbs. is an injury waiting to happen.
The one thing his stringer, nor the article mention is that Agassi changed different model frames too, not only the strings.
$25 a racket. far inexpensive than i thought
The $25 is for labor only -- each pro supplies his own string.
Greg, what machines are they are using?
david sanguinetti strings at 35lbs wow. it must be like playing with a net.
pictures show a Star 3, but on Roman's website, it shows he uses a Sensor.
All I can say is, it's too much thinking just to be a pro. You should be able to string it once, use it until the string breaks, just like recreational players.
Nope, the silver and red machine, I am told, is a Wilson machine.
This guy is WAY hooked on himself.
So true about polyester strings. I bet most people on these boards shouldn't even be using them. Only for very good players it seems.
Ditto on their sticks
I found this amazing as well. But considering how he plays (a counterpuncher type game with medium to short swings) it's not much of a surprise. He doesn't get much pace in his shots. I'd want to try that tension one day, just to see how it feels.
Wilson was the official stringing sponsor. Wilson had a stringing room. Generally, a player like Agassi has his own stringer, and he's respected enough that they'll normally give him some space in the stringing room(s) to work. Doesn't mean he's using a Wilson stringer. I'm sure he uses his own, not just the Wilsons in the stringing room.
All the machines in there are "wilson" machines. Wilson probably doesn't build any of it themselves.
