Yeah you'd think so, but I did a quick count in the string logs from the Masters 1000 Rome tournament a while back. One surprising factoid there, more pros were using full nylon (5) than there were using full gut (two). I counted 22 Gut/Poly setups, 20 Poly/Gut, and 82 full poly. Not many pros using full gut anymore. More actually prefer full nylon. The other thing that pops out from that list is that the top 8 doubles players all use Gut/Poly. That's becoming the de-facto standard in Men's dubs.
