Tennis Identity

The Invisible Army That Makes Pro Tennis Tick

We all see the big bags the pros bring out on court. Some players bring out 5 racquets, others 10 or more. Each is strung to precise specifications and every one will be cut out after the match. Slam tournament stringers can run through 38 racquets a day during the early days of a draw. It is invisible work but the pros could not function without it.
