I wonder about top players changing their rubbers several times a week - is this a kind of quirk or does it really make a difference for them?
At the very top level it does make a difference. They are hitting a lot of balls in a week so the rubber does wear. It reacts slightly differently after it is worn, so for consistency of what they are doing in this sport with very small margins, it is important that they change rubbers regularly.
The good thing for them is that they are sponsored and can afford to do it, unlike most others.
