Do anyone what kind of string Grigor Dimitrov is using and what tension?
If I remember well, he use a 16X19 pattern with Alu Power strung at 42 lbs... but I'd like to get some confirmation too
Wilson Gut mains/luxilon 4g crosses, with power pads in throat. Last tension I stung for him at cincy was 26/25.
Uh oh, he's moving away from his Federer copying ways.
Hey Drak, if you ever get a chance in future, can you get the static weight and balance of his frame?
I have his frame and is almost even balance. Fairly flexible frame and powerful. Curious if the spec is similar.
Thanks! Do you know if he uses a 90 or a 95 headsize?
is in that pounds? If so, that is extremely loose. :shock:
I think it's been well documented here that he's using a 93.
ofc not its in kilos like for most (every?) europeans. 25kilos= 55,1lbs 1kilo = 2,2lbs
I think that's in kilos
Thanks, didn't know that :-?
That's really high. Didn't he use to go 42 lbs in a Prestige Mid?
They are quite different frames. The prestige is low powered with a tight pattern. The Wilson is surprisingly quite powerful so not surprised he strings higher. It feels powerful even with full poly.
I've never played with the 93 but the new Pro Staff 95 is very low powered. The Pro Staff is probably nothing like what he uses though
I've never hit with the 95 but imagine they would be different
Geez, the PS95 has a SW of 306 in stock form. No way any pro plays with it unless they load it up with a ton of lead.
The 93 isn't even in stock form, it has lead and silicone so I was presuming if the 95 was a similar spec they would still play different. The swing weight is over 360 for the 93 using the TW method
unstrung is 328 grams, 338 swing weight, 33 balance.
So the strung balance would be about 340mm so almost even... ?
Thanks for that Drak, appreciate it
@drakulie: With or without overgrip(5 grams) ?
The specs strung, should be around:
BP: 34 cm
Weight: 348 grams (with overgrip)
^^^Sorry about that,,,,, I forgot to mention it had an overgrip when I took the measurements.
What is the TW method?
