Stick with your Stick, but change up the strings

Stick with your Stick, but change up the strings. 
(Brad and Harry’s insight to Polyester strings and tensions.)

I’ve been playing with the Wilson Racket for 4 years, but I always tinker with different strings. I’ve become a Mixologist.  As of right now, I’m really happy using a Wilson string called Champions Choice.  This hybrid combo contains Luxilion ALU Rough and Natural Gut.  I put the Luxilion ALU Rough on the mains at 55lbs and the Natural on the cross at 57lbs. This gives me lots of power and control.

Year-End Rankings

The Men’s Final Scraps Rankings
1. The Fed:  Way back when, I would have thought when Fed dropped to No. 2, I did not think he would regain his No. 1 ranking.  It’s nice to be proved wrong from time to time.  For the third time in his career Fed made the finals of all four majors.  He’s the only player since Laver to do this.  You got to get up!  Standing O for 2009 for Fed Fans and there’s a lot of you out there.  At this rate, he may even have a bigger 2010.
