    just copied and pasted this question into this section. i think i had it in the wrong section before.

    just wondering the following, maybe some help from any of the pro stringers/tecnitians around:

    1. What tension/string does berdych use on his:
    a/ head frames
    b/ his old dunlop frames of 2009

    and any particular pattern he prefers (one or two piece)

    ive heard 54 or 55lbs alu power 1.25, but mixed opinions on one or two piece

    2. what weight/balance/specs his
    a/ head frames have
    b/ dunlop frames had

    i've heard a rough estimate that his dunlop frames were around 355g and slightly head light

    thanks!!

    Berdych used to use a Dunlop tour mold, Option 2A I believe, which was a copy of the old Revelation Tour Pro with a somewhat flexier layup and an 18x20 string pattern. He's currently uses the Head TGK260.2 (after he got Dunlop upset at him for refusing to use AG 200 4D paint because he didn't like the way it felt), which is the Youtek Radical mold, made with a 100% graphite layup (albeit in China), and a 16x19 string pattern.

    A little off topic but it looks like Berdych is wearing an updated version of a classic Sampras Wimbledon shirt from the early 90s that he wore with baggy jean shorts. (different color windowpane)
