Strings and Tension Used by Pro Tennis Players

For this article, I have compiled information in relation to the strings and tension used by the top players on the ATP Tour including Novak Djokovic, Carlos Alcaraz, and Rafael Nadal.

The majority of the tennis pros below use a hybrid setup using a mix of Polyester and natural gut strings, with the most popular string brands being Babolat, Head, Wilson, and Luxilon

The average string tension used by the players listed below was just over 53 lbs, with Andy Murray having the highest string tension at 62 lbs and Cameron Norrie having the lowest string tension at 44 lbs.
