A good recommended tension for a natural gut or multifilament string would be between 55-62lbs.
Similarly one may ask, what string tension do pro tennis players use?
|Player||Racquet Brand||Tension (Crosses)|
|Novak Djokovic||Head||56 lbs.|
|Rafael Nadal||Babolat||55 lbs.|
|Dominic Thiem||Babolat||55 lbs.|
|Roger Federer||Wilson||45 lbs.|
Secondly, how does string tension affect tennis racquet?
If a racquet is strung very tight (58 pounds or more), the ball will not rebound off the strings as much. This means you will have to swing harder to generate a faster shot. … Polyester strings are much stiffer and should be strung at a lower tension (approximately five pounds less) than synthetic gut or a soft string.
