Bring Your Own String!
This post is a brief explanation of why we do not, normally, string a tennis racquet with string supplied by the customer.
- The string may not be suitable for the player or racquet.
- The string is not in good condition.
- The string package is damaged so the condition of the string is unknown.
- The string reel is tangled which requires a great deal of time to untangle.
- There is normally no cost savings.
We do, however, keep client supplied string at the World Headquarters for those clients that buy it. The string is owned by the client and can be taken for off site tournament use.
The number of different strings and brands that make it impossible to keep an adequate supply of all of them without knowing they are going to be used!
Of course there are cases that are not categorized above. The client can go to the “Easy Order” tab on this site and add information to the form which clarifies the string, racquet, and condition.
We can take a look and make a decision based on that information.
The BYOS stringing cost is $30.00. This cost is subject to actual review of the string and racquet.
Racquet Quest keeps a very broad and deep selection of the best possible strings from many brands.
Brittany earned the Silver at the World Championships event in Abu Dhabi recently and congratulations are certainly in order! According to those who were there the athletes were treated to a Five Star event! The best of everything for these extraordinary athletes is well desereved.
Brittany travels to all events (bravely) with three (3) racquets strung with Ashaway MonoGut ZX Black at 46 lbs (20.9kg)! I know some players that will not go to the local courts with fewer than six (6) fresh racquets!
Congratulations to Jack for his Finalist finish in the Junkanoo Bowl in Nassau!
Jack has been playing ITF events and was a qualifier for this tournament. Not only did he qualify, Jack went on the finals where he put in a great three (3) set effort against Harrison Gold, 6-7,6-2,5-7!
Well done, Jack! Congratulations
The “Eddie Herr” is the largest Junior international tennis tournament in the world, and Jack Anthrop is ready for the Eddie!
Jack is using a Head Graphene XT MPA (16×19 format) fitted with Ashaway Monogut ZX. Jack has been using this string for several years and is having really good results as evidenced by his main draw selection into this tournament!
Good luck to Jack, and Maya, (don’t have a picture) and all the participants from all over the world, in this very important tournament!
The Eddie Herr International Tournament is held at the IMG facility in Bradenton, FL beginning November 26 and continuing through December 6th. This tournament has been the “springboard” for players like Roger Federer, Andy Roddick, Maria Sharapova and many other professional players over the years.
I wanted to write an important, and profound, post about the Federer/Monfils match of last night…but no writing can communicate the impact of simply believing in yourself!
Roger said during the match “this may be it!” How many times have we had this phrase running through our minds as things begin to collapse around us.
I have no idea how the US Open will end but I know we can all learn from the on court stability and performance of Roger Federer.
Well Done, Roger!
