    kevoT is WRONG! It varies but people have posted his stringing logs and his AVERAGE tension is 22.5kg.

    It was higher earlier in his career when he played flatter and hit harder

    Around 48 lbs. In WTF London, I heard the commentator said Roger increases the string tension to 51 lbs.

    Playing Nadal on clay also increases his tension.

    And to answer your next question, YES he DOES return Roddick's serve, Nadal's forehand and Sampras' volleys with a SW of 335

    I always assumed he strung it REALLY high.
