ClubHoUno 06-15-2008 05:52 PM

tarie 06-15-2008 11:58 PM

I think also Clement uses a full gut job.

HoVa 06-16-2008 12:50 AM

i heard Rafa eat's kitten guts for his pre-game ritual

Clecwm 06-16-2008 01:26 AM

Tommy Haas. I think many 'senior' players on the tour still use full gut but no doubt the poly setup has dominated the pro scene.

Clecwm 06-16-2008 08:15 PM

Haha. Its really interesting if he does & we can try doing so. Mayb tt's the secret to his great clay court game. :)

It must be great to be a pro and have string cost, durability and playability never be an issue because of fresh string jobs.

Most of us have to make some sacrifice for cost, durability, tension loss, etc.

henin did, don't the williams sisters?

Henin is gone. She sucks.

The Williams Sisters first used Poly when they got onto the scene. In 2005, Serena switched to Natural Gut at the Australian Open. She hit a lot more Unforced Errors and a lot of loopy topspin balls.

Ivanovic

Early in their playing days they used plain Wilson Nylon . Their father often said that they didn't worry about strings that much

Ivanovic doesn't use full gut, she uses ALU/Gut.

Sharapova uses Pro Hurricane/Gut.
