    What I did was only pointing out that your reasoning to disregard TTY by comparing her winning streak to LX's is not valid.

    For me, none of them are legends and not the same level as LD and some of the others. Don't even read your lengthy explanation.
    Maybe someone else can be enlightened with your argument and continue the discussion.
    I am not interested to get involved in it though

    So this is how she gets those abs of steel.

    Here's a good clear sound of her stringbed. I don't have a racket to compare at the moment but knowing she uses VS850, what do you think is her tension?

    Her feeder is 1180 Hz, while hers is 1260 Hz, which makes it around 30-31 lbs on a fresh VS850 string.

    I was thinking 30-32lbs just from the video and then I scrolled down and saw your frequency analysis.

    Interesting. So she's playing with higher tensions in practise than she does in competitions? Hmm...

    Anyone knows about the head size of the TKF?

    That puts those 1260 Hz clearly over the 30 lbs. mark.

    Most likely because her rackets are strung by her dad in TW, so if she plays in a tournament further away from home with a racket strung 1 to 2 weeks prior, then the VS850 string would've lost 2 lbs by the time the tournament starts.

    Good thinking, Watson! So if she is forced to get some of her rackets strung during the tournament, she goes lower to make them equal to the ones she brought strung from home.

    The essence of it (once more...) - it doesn't matter at all if you play 28 or 30 lbs. if you know what to do with them.

    According to this video her dad strings her racquet at 28lb tension. Obviously his 28lb tension could be different to another stringer though, but in the interview she said that she had never used a racquet strung by anyone else - which I find hard to believe tbh.

    Forward to 23.15 and 26.24.

    You could analyse the sound again from this video and see how close it is to 28lb.

    On 30 lbs? It'll lose at least 4 in more than a week :D

    For whatever reasons she had to get two of her rackets restrung by the Victor stringing team during Korea Open:

    With the result that she lost the next match...
