Through the evolution and improvement of rackets, more powerful players immediately sought out solutions to control their power without losing feel.
The combination that guarantees the desired effect is without question a hybrid, a technique that consists in mixing different strings on the mains and the crosse of a racket. The mains contribute to the spin and durability, the crosses account for power and comfort. Adding the benefits of each string allows many combinations to answer the needs of each player.
A “winning combination” that players at the highest level are looking for: 40 % of players in the top 20 ATP and 50 % in the WTA are using hybrid strings.
