    Thats a bit harsh don't you think?

    First of all use a thicker string, 65mm pretty thin. Depending on your level and how hard you hit, 1 day isn't techincally impossible if you hit hard and miss hit a lot. Try using bg65 or 70, and see how that pans out. If it snaps relatively often, then try getting a new stringer.

    Could be various of reasons:

    1. Need a better stringer

    2. String already damaged due to unproper storage (manfacture defect, etc)

    3. Unproper storage of racket - leave it in the bag (without cover) with keys, etc

    4. Hard or mis hits

    5. Damaged gromment(s)
