Default De Minaur's stringing

Anyone have any insight or know a stringer at Wimbledon to give information about De Minaur's stringing situation? He broke 3 or 4 strings, all in the throat. Is he using all gut, or does his particular Wilson have nasty grommets?

Or are his sticks going to a stringer who files his clamps sharp?

He uses a Pro Stock Steam 99 frame under the Blade paintjob.

I am unsure of the tension but he uses a full bed of Luxilon 4G.

Thanks for that. It looked like a single species job, not hybrid. Can't imagine why he is breaking strings like that. He isn't Godzilla!

He uses Luxilon 4g Rough. We suspect faulty string

FYI, I'm the Head stringer of the Wimbledon Stringing Team

Regards
