    Is he using a real 100P or he's using a 95 with paintjob?

    It looks like Alu Power smooth to me, but I could be wrong.

    Where are those high-res close ups from? They don't look like TV screen caps. You can even see the well defined bevels of the grip. Does he have leather underneath the Tournagrip? Synthetic and Tournagrip doesn't usually result in such sharp bevels unless the synthetic is ultra thin.

    I find them via google image search. I use the search tools to restrict size or time to narrow results. Most that I post are the native DSLR resolution or what was provided to the news agency.

    Still amazing that no prince players (the few still around) use the TT95

    The best way to tell by looking at photos is on the outside of the frame at skips, if you can find photos of it. Then the light is falling on both strings in the same manner.

    I saw a few photos where the crosses were really shining which made me think the same thing, but it could just be directional light. The gold tone makes me wonder if it is luxilon gut.

    looks like you are right, seems to be a hybrid of some sort. Most noticeable if you look up the grommet channel, specifically around the skips.

    Can anyone make out the sticker on the inside of the racket's throat. It doesn't look like a Lucas Hollywood label. Did he stop using that monicker? The string and tension information should be on that label.

    The bottom line says L Pouille ?? (can't make out the last two characters) so the top line may be more interesting. I'll hunt some more pics.
