Frank Dancevic (Canada) – Wilson K Blade – Mains Big Banger Alu Pwr, Crosses VS @ 18k.
Dmitri Tursunov – Wilson K Blade – mains are Big Banger Ace 112 and Alu Pwr crosses @ 49lbs.
Samantha Stosur (Aus) – Bab Pure Storm – mains Big Banger Alu Pwr @ 62lbs, crosses VS with pre-stretch @ 53lbs.

Not surprisingly, alot of Luxilon and Babolat VS gut hybrids. Interesting to see some of the Babolat players using the red “Revenge” string. Haven’t seen or heard much about it, but I’m sure it will be big with the Babolat name behind it.
