    I'd have to bet some sort of Luxilon for sure, probably ALU power. What racquet has he got?

    I saw today's LA Times sports page and he was on the front cover on the lower left corner. It was a LM Prestige w/ a Head SmartDamp.

    SmartDamp is a long dampener by Head, but I have no idea whatsoever about his strings.

    I think he is using a Head string. I don't know what type, the family has moved to Atlanta so I don't think I will see him much anymore. Donald was using an un-customized I-tour but switched late last year to the LM Prestige. I don't think he would use a polyester because his dad once had arm problems and my guess is that he would keep the kid away from the harsh strings.

    I bet the LM is a paintjob.

    There is no way a painted i.tour could look like an LMP. The i.tour's head shape is spoonlike and is a dead giveaway.

    at first glance, i'd say it's Luxilon original or luxilon ace 18 in the mains, and probably gut crosses, since it looked crystal-ish
