Interesting stuff. Thanks for sharing.

Lavs 05-07-2012 04:01 PM

did not manage to watch Baghdatis game but really would like to know which Fischer he uses.. my bet old Vacuum Pro MP (Kafelnikov)...

Lavs,

Thank you very much, great to know what they are using and what tension.

Bartelby 05-07-2012 06:06 PM

I string like Falla.

Up&comer 05-07-2012 06:11 PM

Wow. Tsonga strings at 34/29. That's quite a tension difference.

Rjtennis 05-07-2012 06:31 PM

Cool stuff. Thanks!

I wonder how Kukushkin can use 18/18 kg? That barely under 40# of tension.

Ronaldo 05-07-2012 07:10 PM

X-Man keeps it old school.

I think thats 31/29, looking at the other 1s.

Europeans tend to draw long accents on their number 1s. A generalisation I know, but my parents do it, and whenever I've noticed this style I've noted it's come from a European. I quite like it. Also love the 9s with their lowercase g-like descenders.

31/29, not 34/29

My fault :oops:

32/32 kg is over 70 pounds. How does Peya still have an arm?

Ronaldo 05-07-2012 07:36 PM

Alexander Peya still old school too. Knows pain is such an important thing in life. A player should experience suffering.

drakulie 05-07-2012 07:45 PM

Only 3 players using RPM.

OriginalHockeytowner 05-07-2012 09:18 PM

Very cool picture! 3 players using VS/Alu hybrid, and one with the VS/RPM Blast hybrid, very interesting stuff.

I don't think he ever really switched from this frame. I still have several of these; it is a great racquet, in my opinion.

While it's still on the higher side he did go down some kilo's, a few years ago he strung around 37kg (81lbs)

Keep in mind he doesnt use a poly but a high end multi which is veryyyyy elastic...

Thanks for posting, interesting stuff.
I thought that some of those players were with priority 1.
Or does the tourney get string info just incase?

Priority One provides stringing at the 4 majors and the 1000 Master series.
