    Hey guys!

    I was wondering if you guys could give me a couple of the top racquets and strings used by the pros on the ATP and WTA tour. My friend wanted to know and I told him I would help. Thanks!

    sure Matt.for racquets Wilson ProStaff6.1, Head Prestige in diff forms, Babolat Pure Drive
    for strings...Luxilon Big Banger and VS Gut
    That would be for the mens tour..i think the equipment is maybe all over the place for the WTA, but maybe another poster can help. BTW..i was a teaching pro where you live years ago. a place called Shenango Valley RC..is that club still there?

    unfourtunately, it is not... I think it was in sharpville with maybe 3 courts... my parents told me about it, but i was too young to remeber anything about it or it for that matter... the closest place is in liberty, liberty racquet club. where do you live now?
