    Is that a (pro stock) Blade? H22? Strings? Tension? Does anyone know?

    He uses some kind of heavy custom racquet with nice poly strings and hits the ball hard.

    Stock Blade. Under the paint is a BLX Amplifeel. Saw him play at the under-18s orange bowl in 2014, strings it up with 4G.

    I saw him last week on Estoril Open, and I was very impressed with this guy. Great player, good hands, very easy and fluid style on his ground strokes.
    His backhand reminds me a bit of young Federer's backhand, on early 2000's.
    Strangely, for such a gifted player, his net game is weak. He did a very good dive volley by the end of the match, but didn't show much skills there

    What is the benefit of stringing the crosses higher than the mains?

    ^^ good to know, I saw him playing at the citi open and was sitting pretty close in box seats when he was playing Goffin but couldnt tell if he was using a stock blade or something under the camo

    His racquet looks similar to the old black gold blade. But it could also be one of the many pro stock sticks that Wilson gives to athletes. But for sure it is 18x20 and in Paris he strung it with 4G at 25/25kg.
