Stringing at Barclay’s ATP World Tour Finals

Big Time Tennis’s Pacific guy, Tom Parry, blogged from London at Tennis Week (http://www.tennisweek.com) during the ATP World Tour Finals. The blog is appropriately titled “Behind the scenes, from behind the machines.”

Tom was also interviewed from the stringing room for the official website. http://www.barclaysatpworldtourfinals.com/Tennis/Media/Videos/2009/Barclays-B…

Interesting factoid from the blog and interview: Davydenko stringing the mains one tension (21k initially, the first five crosses another tension, 17k, then the rest of the crosses a third tension, 19k). This may have something to do with the O-ports on his Prince racket starting on the 6th cross down.

Also, check out the post from Day 9 that discusses and shows pictures of Robin Soderling’s handle, pictured below.
