At times search can be a frenemy. Spelling is hard or threads use a nickname instead of what you are searching. I aim to list search terms, key threads, and posts related to popular players. Players names and nicknames are links to google search of this forum. Specs are linked to posts they originated from, the most recent specs are bold. Links to images may be helpful for research.

If you want to contribute links to actual measurements or good gear information on players that isn't speculation I plan on working this into a solid reference list over time.

Thanks guys, hopefully I don't forget it as quickly as my footwork :)

There are still many inaccuracies in the rackets shown, maybe someone else can amend these.

But yes, this should be a sticky. Would help reduce all the redundant threads we get every other day.

But what racquet does fedr use?????
I don't intend to list things which are debatable or regularly being debated. Just the facts that are widely accepted by regular posters.

We've had several contentious threads about that and I'd rather this not be another.

Without which, this entire forum would be utterly useless.
Perhaps you misunderstand, if people find what they need here instead of creating a new thread that is great, but what I'm looking to aggregate is links to the sources which one would turn to if replying to "What string is rafa using". I don't expect anyone to post new info here instead of creating a thread. I spent too much time digging for the thread "No1e's Racquet" when I needed to reference it.
