I think it is a good example of why you should not just let anyone string your racket. I've seem worse when someone brought me a Wilson racket with the bottom cross skipped because the mains tied at 6T blocking hole 7T with two strings (or because then ran short.) anyway they tied off the string from 9T on the outside of the frame on the string going from 10T to 6T. The guy said the knot tail got caught on everything and drove him nuts when he would spin the racket.
Everyone has the right to be stupid... it's just that some people abuse the privilege
