Does anybody anchor their starting knot on a cross instead of a main? I have always anchored to a main, as the stringing instructions for each racket I've strung indicate this. I have yet to notice a racket strung differently. Today I was watching a Wimbledon highlights video and caught a glimpse of Federer's racket in slow mo - it shows the crosses tied off on the 2nd cross string (instead of the 5th main, for example). The shot lasts only a second or two, starts at 00:14 Just curious if anyone has seen this or understands the logic. I'm guessing it's to avoid damage to the main string.
