Together, these integrated technologies increase the racket’s hotspot by 15 percent. The hotspot is located in the center of the sweetspot, where players derive the greatest power and force behind their shots.
CV technology was originally designed for the aerospace industry to dissipate vibrational energy in airplanes and space vehicles. Wilson LABSTM, the innovation hub at Wilson, worked with CV's creator, Materials Sciences Corporation, to evaluate how the technology could be used to help tennis players battle the compounding physical effects of the faster, harder-hitting modern game of tennis and the rigorous training athletes undergo to prepare for match-level play.
Both of those solutions boil down to money. Naturally, for many in a 128-player draw, that first round prize money is a big deal, which is why they will show up to play even if they go in knowing they are unfit and may have to pull the plug mid-match. As a concession to that driving factor, players will now be allowed to collect fifty percent if they withdraw after noon on site on Thursday but before the main draw begins. Coupled with this, players who are knowingly unfit to play and still opt to compete could face a fine up to the total amount of their first-round prize money if they fail to finish the match or “perform below professional standards.” Together, these two rules should encourage players to make the smart choice and subsequently improve the overall optics of the sport.
Advances in materials, equipment, conditioning and training have increased the pace of today’s game. Players look for any edge over their opponents: every gram counts. Bringing lightness to tennis footwear presents a unique challenge. Players not only need speed, but just as importantly, they also need support.
