Just watching Thiem Practice today on Tennis TV chanel and I saw this ... broken copoly on crosses. With so much top spin from him, I would expect for the black gut main broken first.

very interesting for me to see no lead...and the change in strings...i kinds like hes tinkering with things tbh...
What is going on is on hard courts He has NO time and needs more head light racket,, so he took the lead off. it makes sense.

Could it be that Babolat built a heavier racquet for him so there was no need for him to add lead?
Lead at 3&9 raises twistweight - the current pure strike did that but it seems most players on tour haven’t switched, Dominic included.

Without the lead he still had the x-sider grooves. They could have made him a different frame but it seems more likely he is experimenting.

He is using the Red string in his racket right now in Doha against Donskoy ? Not sure what string that is
I’d guess Babolat Vs Touch black and Rpm blast rough red.

Interesting that he seems to have remove all lead. This fits the other thread about his racquet. Maybe he has some under the bumper. Maybe he’s gone completely stock PS 2015.

Isn't PS 2015 stock,, pretty light racket ? I couldn't believe how light it was and easy it was to swing when I hit with it......... Hard to believe a Pro would use such a light swinging racket.....they usually want more Swing weight so that they can more RPM and more weight to the ball.

It's VS 1.3 (black) / RPM Blast Rough 1.3 (red) at 24,5kp, according to ringroll (stringing service in Abu Dhabi).

Picturea from Abu dhabi showed Thiem added lead at 3 and 9 again. Swingweight strung 340g. Unbelievable. Such low swingweight

Hi all,

Yes, we can confirm that Dominic is testing a new hybrid setup this week in Vienna. While it is only a test, we can't communicate quite yet on the specifics but hope to do soon! I will keep you updated as things progress.

Now is it possible to know what setup Thiem is using? :D
