    It use to be alu rough in the mains and gut in the crosses now it's the other way around. Most likely for more feel and control given the gut being in the mains.

    Nope.
    -First it was all gut (until AO '03)
    -Then full BBAlu Rough (AO '03 & FO '03)
    -From AO '03 to USO '03, with the exclusion of the given tourneys , BBAlu Rough mains/gut crosses
    -AO '04/current Gut mains/BBALU Rough crosses

    Yeah, that's right, he has switched it around a few times.

    I dont think he ever used full ALU rough
    just checked pics and he was definitely using gut mains at those times

    what does the alu in the crosses provide for, is it sidespin for i/o and o/i groundstrokes and volleys?? I assume the gut in the mains is for power but never tried this combo so just wondering. Also curious as to the string tension he typically uses. Thanks.

    Can't believe he's changed it around as much...... that feels like a lot of change for a pro at the top of his game
