Spaghetti Strings - It is the year 1977. Location: Aix-en-Provence, France. Guillermo Vilas, managed by Ion Tiriac, and who had previously been unconquered in almost 50 matches, loses to Romanian Ilie Nastase. The racket of Nastase: A spaghetti string racket (also: Fischer strings, Vilsbiburger strings). In 1971, German horticulturalist, Werner Fischer, invented this new way to string tennis racquets. It generated so much spin on the ball that it was eventually banned by the International Tennis Federation in 1978 after the intervention of Tiriac the year before right after the Vilas-Nastase match. One of the problems was that players of relatively low standing were able to beat top players by generating much more spin than the top players could at the time. Ironically, the modern game of tennis has evolved to the point where players like Nadal can now generate almost as much spin as Fischer could in the 1970’s with his spaghetti strings. "The Spaghetti": The most unconventional and remarkable strings in the history of tennis.
