Two models in the 2017 Ultra line feature Countervail (CV) technology (the Ultra 100 CV and Ultra 105S CV) which is exclusive to Wilson performance rackets. CV is an integrated frame technology that minimizes vibration without sacrificing performance and feel. According to a University of Minnesota School of Kinesiology study** tennis players using a racket with CV experienced up to 30 percent less vibrational energy from the racket and as a result of less fatigue 40 percent more control over their shots. In addition to maximizing player energy CV shortens recovery time after matches.
“Countervail can help a player maximize every single swing in a way not possible before” said Hans-Martin Reh General Manager of Wilson Racquet Sports. “This technology coupled with our new sleek racket design elements creates a power-forward racket for a player like Kei – one who excels at playing from the baseline.”
Also don't get stuck in your tennis shoes all day when you're in between matches. Get a pair of flip flops or off-court shoes that you feel comfortable in so you can give your feet some reprieve between matches. It'll give your feet and tennis shoes a chance to dry out as well which helps fight the onset of those pesky blisters.
Tennis players make a LOT of money. The ones at the top make millions a year JUST from their on-court accomplishments alone (not to mention the mind-blowing figures of money thrown at them for sponsorship and adverts and so on). So should there not be a certain respect a certain decorum that acknowledges their position and their iconic status - something representative of their understanding how those they influence can mimic behavior that they are not only heroes but examples of how to live life? Tennis needs strong role models who lead the way. The players not at the top make a lot of money too. The ones outside the top 100 can make a living that way. Of course getting to 200 in the world is not easy as that means a player is in the best 200 in the world. Just do the math on the world population and surely it’s an impressive feat too. The point is if Roger Federer who smashed rackets as a teenager can stop for the most part (he does occasionally have a tantrum) if Nadal can never ever smash one because his coach stated when he was a child that if he ever did that they would be finished if those players can have the discipline and mental focus and not be violent and channel the frustration of some moments into improving their play in the following points is that not what should be trained encouraged and implemented on a much wider scale?
