@cluckcluck thanks for the scoop - during Verdasco's R1 match v Wawrinka he was switching frames between serving and receiving.
Guess he was paraphrasing Mars Blackmon, yo it's gotta be the strings!
(Phew, wish he'd get out of his head and play his game)

My friend, the stringer, told me that he strung for Verdasco at another tournament and was switching between 16x19 and 18x20 racquets all with varying tensions and strings. He's definitely taken a page out of the TTW playbook.

Velocity MLT kills me! LOL I never thought I'd be seeing what I consider a total junk string on the pro tour.

A friend of mine is at the USO right now and has been lacing up Verdasco's frames, 4 different strings.
Here are some pics:




If I'm reading the pixels right the top real is Big Banger Original, probably 130. The second photo of the pack is BBO Rough. Of those I'm guessing that is Velocity in the mains on the racquet.

Was one of those supposed to be alu rough, it seems to be absent?

It's probably not 4 strings in 1 racquet.... Almost certainly we'd see that in photos. Very likely he's just going back and forth between setups.
