    I believed that they normally restring it to maintain the tension.

    or they could do their own mix of string gauge using LN right?
    or they ran out of LN strings, and this being YY event, only option left?

    Praveen aside, Ginting has the same issues with LN.

    Once the switch was made from Yonex, he used the Aerobite on 88D for a prolonged period of time along with taped up SHB65Z's (black/red).

    He finally changed the racket and shoe, but for string-wise, he went onto LN and then came back, fast. Currently it is still Aerobite till this day.

    Seems like they love the control or slice a lot for these 2 to love AB and ABBT.

    Quite a few ppl can't adjust to more slippery strings. Same with the NBG line from YY. Also, back in the day some teams continued using YY strings because they're the most available of the brands.

    I saw his rackets at the Dutch Open a while back. He had like 15 kilos or something crazy. He snaps 5 strings in warm up.. Can't remember the string...
