On a flight to JFK

I’m sitting here at 36000 feet typing this because I cannot sleep (it’s 1:04am local) on this darn airplane.
I’m headed to New York City for 2.5 weeks to help out the Wilson/Luxilon team in the stringing room. It’s going to be a tall order, considering the tryout in Miami nearly killed me.
I’ll be there from the first week of qualies thru the first week of main draws.
If there is a specific player/setup that you want to know about ask me here and I’ll see what I can find out.
I’m going to try to sleep now.

See if Gilles Simon is still using Intellitour in his mains with a poly cross, or just the full bed of multi. Thanks.

@cluckcluck Luxilon used to have a string log for the US Open showing how many racket were strung, how many hybrids, how many full bed, string used, tension etc. If they still have that record it would be nice if you could post the link. Good luck enjoy your time in NY

Was just up in Montreal last week, and happened to catch a few minutes of Simon practicing. Still looked like gray Intellitour to me.
I'm really starting to love Intellitour 17. I just may buy a reel of it soon.
 
Stringing for a Grand Slam is a big deal

First, it shows he is a world class pro at stringing.
That's a big deal around here.

It is not about money, he is prepping the racket that will be used by the biggest names in the sport.
There are serious (deluded) gear heads here, but this "nobody" is going to know first hand exactly what ATP top 10 players are using in their rackets.
That's also a seriously big deal around here.

Congrats and good luck! I would like to know how low Jack Sock is stringing at these days. Also, the tensions of FAA and Opelka, if possible. Thanks and good luck stringing!

in the absence of the "like" button...wonder what hitting the "report" button will do? Sad that some people just jump and attack others...

@cluckcluck again...best regards. Looking forward on the stories of your adventure.
