June 6, 2011

CHICAGO — Luxilon strings were once again the top choice for players reaching the final weekend of the French Open in Paris. Most notably, three out of the four men’s singles semifinalists played Luxilon strings, including runner-up and all-time Grand Slam champion Roger Federer. Federer’s Luxilon string of choice is ALU Power Rough 125.

In the men’s quarterfinals, seven of the eight men’s players relied on Luxilon strings to elevate their games. Not to be outdone, the men’s doubles champions, Daniel Nestor and Max Mirnyi played Luxilon strings as well. Nestor uses ALU Power 125 in his racquet and Mirnyi plays with ALU Power Rough 125. The men’s doubles final featured three out of the four players using Luxilon strings with Eduardo Schwank also using ALU Power 125.
