The site you've listed seems to have lifted the information from the other linked site mentioned in this thread; and that information is either out of date or inaccurate from the start. Also some players request tensions in kilos not pounds. It would be best to show those tensions than trying to convert to pounds.I found this site that lists what they found.. and some of it doesn't make sense. ie Federer is listed as having his racquet strung "Roger Federer Wilson Pro Staff Six.One Tour BLX
Wilson Natural Gut/Luxilon Big Banger Alu Power Rough 48.5/44lbs"
48.5/44lbs"? I don't think so. Everything else on this site is AWESOME. But this info looks shady. Fed is 25kg/23kg (55lbs/52lbs) more like it from what read here.
The information on the top half of that page is rubbish, because they just stole it from the Colin the Stringer site, which, as I and others have already said in various threads, contains many mistakes.
At Roland Garros 2011, Lleyton's tension was 39 LBS, in the 2012 grass court season it was 37 LBS, and this year's grass court season it was 35 LBS.
These were all with the same setup below:
He is using VS Touch in the mains.
For the grass court season this year, this was his setup:
Mains - Babolat VS Touch 16 @ 35 LBS (no pre-stretch)
Crosses - Luxilon Big Banger Alu Power 17 @ 35 LBS
Hope this can be of help,
Sorry for reviving this old thread. How did JCF's racquet spec come about? very interesting for sure. I thought he was using L3 instead of L2 grip? and 28" longbody/hairpin pro stock? Would love to discuss more if you also have a contact method. Thanks.Juan Carlos Ferrero

Hi Kevo82, any chance to reach you directly? Would love to discuss more on the JCF racquet details and such. Thanks!The info is collected from many threads around here. But you are right, I checked the thread when JCF just switched to Ozone Tour, and he used a 4 3/8 so L3.
I am not sure about the longbody though. He used a POG longbody for sure (I spoke with his coach long time ago), but no info for the Ozone.
Anyway, if you have new info about other players, please add to this thread.
It's better to collect all the info in one place than search all over the forum.

About JCF Prince, I know that he used O Zone Tour (not Pro), before switching to Exo line and then retire. I had two of them but I hated them with the rubber grommet, and didn't love them with the plastic grommet.
When I played in Spain at his academy he was using the Triple Threat Graphite longbody, but Prince made him play with the Prince NXG (silver with green).
His phisio Victor Muńoz Moreno told me that JCF hated that raquet and hat was the reason that the next year, 2005 he switched to Head Flexpoint Midplus XL.
After one year, he switched from Head to the blacked out Prince (Triple Threat Graphite LB) and signed again with Prince Ozone Tour (i think LB, not sure) in 2008/2009
The exact info about his racquet specs you can find in a thread with close up pictures. I got the specs from there and posted them on this page.
All true stats except the strung weight which was 373 grams mostly. Some slight variations but no more than 2 grams or soEdberg
There is no reliable single source with regards to Edberg's stick that I have found. Sources are various threads on this forum and a danish site that once upon a time had lots of info on string jobs for pros. I unfortunatly have lost the link to the site. But I remember Edberg's info. Edit: The danish site had links to the "Pro Equipment Logs" from racquettech dot com. On that site you need membership to access, but the danish site still has some newer logs linked. see ketcherstrenge dot dk
Pro Staff Midsize, bumperless, St.Vincent factory. Pro Staff Classic paintjob between circa 1991-1992.
Head size: 85 sq. inches
Weight: 360 or 376 g (unstrung) acc. to two different sources (paintjob stick for both numbers). The latter number possibly strung weight
Balance: 8 or 7 pt head light (unstrung) acc. to two different sources.
String pattern: 16 x 18
Grip size: Custom between 4 1/2 and 4 5/8. I have seen claims of a built up buttcap as well.
Strings: Bow Brand Gut for most of his career. VS All Season for later career
Tension: 57/55 usually. Seen lower with bigger gap between mains/crosses for clay (55/51)
Possibly, Edberg got his sticks customized by the factory directly. No reports of any visible lead or other visible customizations.
Are you sure it wasn’t you?Ok
This is the best thing I've ever seen
