    Anyone know for sure what hybrid setup Taylor was using at the Open? Looked bluish (at least in the mains...or crosses?) sorta like Roddick's used to.... Thx

    I recently read in either Tennis magazine or Tennis.com, that his tension is 40lbs to reduce injuries.

    huh...that's really low. :-\ I do know that his racquet is really heavy and has a very very low flex to add more control. So I guess a poly at low tensions wouldn't be that ridiculous.
