    I don't know, but his raquet sure is ugly! Something about that head shape...

    Ripper, i totally agree. His racquet resembles a reject easter egg, but of course its' not the looks that make a racquet (had to add that in because someone who say something about it sooner or later)

    It doesn't bother me. I have decided to always suck so i don't have to play someone who has to get a new racquet every point. That would tick me off.

    Can someone verify Haas' string? Still VS gut? Some say he already lowered his tension to take stress off of his arm and shoulder. Didn't he have a wrist surgery long long time ago?

    Nowadays Haas use Babolat Vs16 @ ~27Kilos. The 32 or 33Kilos was a long time ago, before he got shoulder problems.

    27 kilos is like 60 pounds or so. And 72 is not particularly high for pros who use a full gut job (take Sampras and his VS Gut strung at 85). What's ridiculous is James Blake who has poly in his stick strung at 68.

    There were a few days this January when Tommy went as high as 34/33kg with VS 1.30 prestretched, when it was really hot.
