This new innovation created in collaboration with French tech outfit PIQ which is also working on bringing more sensor based analytics to other sports like golf and skiing is part of two big trends. The obvious trend is the data driven way to understand your game. As Genie Bouchard said at Friday’s product launch at the Manhattan Plaza Racquet Club “people can tell you when you’re hitting the ball but there’s nothing more accurate than technology.” The metrics she is most interested in are where in her stroke she typically makes contact with the ball and the speed of her arm on groundstrokes.
Crush Zone is an innovative grommet system that compresses at impact and increases ball dwell time on the strings. The benefit of this technology is better feel and more potential energy that drives explosive power.
First aid kit (w/ ankle brace): It's always good to have some essentials in your bag - athletic tape pre-wrap Neosporin (or some other anti-septic cream) Ibuprofen and maybe even a pair of nail clippers. Everyone might be a little different in what else they want to bring to the court but those essentials will cover almost anything.
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.
