Who was the last pro to use full gut.
 
do you know the answer? I'm not talking about hybrids here.

AYuille 12-21-2012 11:45 AM

I think Radek Stepanek still does.

I know Serena recently changed from all gut to a hybrid, but I believe Venus still playes with all gut unless she changed too.

i think full gut is still common with top doubles players

Steps switched to a gut/poly hybrid a few years ago.

I believe Llodra still uses full gut though.

Haas kept at it for a long time. I remember a YouTube vid of him mumbling too himself about these stupid kids cheating using poly while he plied his trade with full gut. Loved it... Think haas is a legend.

Clijsters used full gut.

Lisa Raymond, Date-Krumm, Llodra still use full gut

one of the bryan brothers (can't remember which one) uses full gut. the other one uses a hybrid (poly/gut).

On another note, Paola Suarez still uses a full bed of Prince Tournament Nylon.

Both were back to gut/poly at the ATP Tour Finals.

db10s 12-22-2012 03:09 PM

Courier Gosen OG custom, it was different, harder than the OG that is still around. He now crosses SG with poly in his Donnays.

RFRF 12-24-2012 12:34 AM

Mark philippousis was the last

Kalin 12-24-2012 04:25 AM

A bit OOT... Jim Courier's Gosen syngut was anything but a cheapo.... it was in fact an amazing string... pity that Gosen discontinued it :(
