    I'm curious which kind of gripshape is used by the pro's. I've seen a lot of play with head rackets but i can't imagine they play with the awfully rectangular gripshape.
    Anyone on this messageboard who maybe strings for pro's has some more info??

    This is more guessing than actually knowing. A better question might be which is the favourite gripshape for pro's.

    I would assume they usually use custom-molded grips, considering the lengths they go to to have their racquets all matched exactly the same.

    Custom gripshape but most of them seem to be using the Wilson shape. Very few use the Head shape (Haas and Berdych, etc.)
