What is the string made of in professional tennis racquets?

String is made of four basic materials: (1) natural gut-- made form beef intestines (most commonly used material in natural gut) (2) nylon--commonly referred to as synthetic gut. This also covers such terms as multifilament or multifiber (3) Kevlar--also used to produce bullet proof clothing and considered to be one of the most durable of strings but not the most comfortable to play with (4) Polyester -- technically referred to as co-polymer strings. Polyester strings has consistently become the most popular string on the professional tennis tour in the 21st century. On the ATP and WTA tours, natural gut was the most popular string for many, many years. With new technology there are more and more variations of synthetic string available and co-polymer strings are constantly being improved to be more "player friendly". Today, many players are using hybrid string jobs in their racquets. Hybrids consist of different strings in the main (vertical) and cross (horizontal) strings. These can be a mix of various string types or the exact same string material in two different gauges (thicknesses). Still, no man-made string has properties equal to natural gut with regards to how the string responds at tensions between 50-70 lbs, the tesnion range most commonly used in tennis.
