Key Points

  • Roger uses the smallest racquet on tour
  • He also strings at the lowest tension of the top 4 to offset the loss off power caused by the frame he uses
  • Federer’s racquet has the thinnest beam and is the most “traditional” compared to the others making it harder to play with
  • Nadal strings at 55 lbs on both crosses and mains whatever the court surface or conditions
  • Djokovic has the densest string pattern to suit his flat hitting style
  • Federer, Murray and Djokovic all use a gut and synthetic set up on their strings, Nadal uses full poly
