There is a net behind the court that is likely causing some moire and false color, looks yellow like hurricane as a cross instead of rpm.Is Thiem playing with Hyper g or am i just colorblind?
BTW he is now playin if u wanna see... seems to be a green/yellow string
Guys like thiem don’t need tactics... Last time I checked most people can’t return 90mph forehands...
Looks like RPM Blast Black on mains and RPM Blast Rough on crosses for some extra spin actually. As far as I know Thiem never liked Nat Gut.So, vs gut mains with rpm blast rough yellow crosses?
I might have to try this so i can hit groundstrokes at ninety miles per hour when pulled wide.
If being as good as Thiem is to the point of beating Federer and being the 6th best player in the world is called bad tactics, I say give me all of that nasty style!
Yeah! And nastier spins.If being as good as Thiem is to the point of beating Federer and being the 6th best player in the world is called bad tactics, I say give me all of that nasty style!
There's more to it than that. He beat Fed twice, once on hard and once on grass, plus he's beat Nadal twice on clay (and is the only player to do so this entire year). He's also got wins over Djokovic and Murray and many other top players.If being as good as Thiem is to the point of beating Federer
Jack Sock tried it too for a while but he couldn't control it so he went back to Luxilon/ Gut. is it really RPM blast rough though ?? there are so many yellow strings out there.Lol!! You must be smoking whatever Nostradamus is smoking; psst, where can I get it?
Cool. Indeed. Black gut. Vs touch with the dreaded btseven! I did not look hard enough. Was just going by a post i misread, and a little photo.looks like black gut
I noticed this also. Def overhitting too much.Thiem has been hitting many more shots long with what appears to be more pop/power than before. So this RPM rough obviously has more in it than his previous cross string.
That very first match with him using it his servers and forehands were bazookas in all the wrong ways.
Good catch! Interesting that he would make so many changes at this time of the year.It looks like it’s not just the strings he’s changed, can’t see any lead at 3 and 9 any more.
