What strings do the pros use?

Here is the most up to date list of ATP and WTA players string preferences I could find from professional racket stringer Colin.

http://www.colinthestringer.com/pros-strings/

When two tensions are shown, the first references the mains (north/south strings) and the second tension references the crosses (west/east strings). When two strings are mentioned, this indicates a hybrid string job with the first string mentioned referencing the mains and the second referencing the crosses.

If you are looking for a competitive edge or just a different feel from your equipment, experimenting with your strings and string tensions can sometimes be the answer, and while you may not have the same demands as the worlds best, they may be able to provide some inspiration for your next re-string.
