Arrow Players' String Tension

At the site they are showing " Players' String Tension " on the white board. It would be interesting to know how different string tension of these players.

My string tension is about 58/60 lbs. How many kgs/lbs do you string your racket ? Please share your opinion


Note : 1 kg = 2.2 lbs.

My string tension is set at 57lbs for adequate power and more control. I'm surprised how loose some of the players' tensions are. Lleyton must have super control of his racquet despite his loose strings. I guess he needs the extra power. And no wonder Alicia has a high error count with a tension that low. LOL@James, who is at 68lbs and still has the least control of anyone who hits as hard as he does. Looks like Lindsay, Jiri and Maureen string their own racquets as Martina Hingis used to do. Nobody knows what her string tension was - not even Martina. Her mother used to do all the stringing for her and Martina only ever knew what she "felt" in her strings rather than the actual string tension itself.

26kg, it used to be 28kg

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

I reallly don't believe Xavier strings at 27kg, I think he's midway 30 to 40kg

Lindsay either has her own personal stringer or she strings her own racquets herself. The stringers didn't have her string tension written on the whiteboard because they didn't string her racquets for her.

Maybe she should string them a bit more heavy for more control!

My strings are at 58 lbs.
But I think it should be up to 60 lbs or more. Coz I found it's hard to hit the ball back which is undercut by opponent, and the ball often failed to fly over the net in running forehand.
Well, the strings with lower tension could easily deal with the ball coming in the ordinary way.
