9 out of the top 10 ATP tennis players use polyester strings, find out why!

It is no secret that the top pros are using polyester and a 360 turn from just 10 years ago.  Did we kill the serve and volley? are we generating a more powerful game?  The top touring pros are using polyester and changing the game of tennis.  Over the next few weeks going into the US OPEN I will be discussing poly strings, my USOPEN stories and more fun tennis stuff. 

Here is a run down of the top 10 ATP players as of 8/07/2011.

Novak Djokovic - The only one out of the top 10 not using polyester.  He is said to be using Tecnifibre x-one Biphase multifilament.
Rafael Nadal - Babolat RPM Blast 16g polyester.
Roger Federer - Natural Gut and BIg Banger Rough 16L.
Andy Murray - Luxilon Big Banger Alu Power Rough 16L.
Robin Soderling -  Luxilon Big Banger Alu Power 16L.
David Ferrer - Luxilon Big Banger Original 16g.

Mardy Fish - Luxilon Timo 1.10 and Natural Gut 17g
Tomas Berdych - Luxilon Big Banger Alu Power Fluoro 17g.

It is easy to see that polyester strings have made a mark on the top players.  Stay tuned for more on how poly has changed the game.
