Correct, treblings. It was a modern racquet, and it was unbelievable how tight he strung it. He went back to his original grip towards a Western and hit the ball below the center, which helped him put more topspin and also keep the ball in. Amazing athlete, about 45 to 47 heartbeats per minute at rest.
