The full Heritage line features an assortment of tops with four tank top styles a polo shirt and a long sleeve shirt. To pair back to the tops the collection consists of three skirts including pleated and striped designs. Also offered are two types of shorts in both woven and double layer options. The Heritage Pleated Dress was crafted with a contrast color back and upper arm panels and striped rib detailing at the armholes and front pleats. The range also includes versatile pieces like the Heritage Jacket and Heritage Pant designed to take wearers beyond the court.
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.
Installing Black Code 4S was actually a lot less trouble than expected. Typically geometric or textured polys can be a bear for the fingers but 4S wasn't terribly onerous even though the edges were definitely noticeable. Coil memory seemed typical for a polyester but with a little care tangles and kinks were easily avoided. As with most geometric or textured polys installing crosses comes with some risk of damage due to the sharp edges. I didn't have any issues but I'd still encourage other stringers to take their time installing crosses—especially if they're blending Black Code 4S with another softer string.
In addition to the loss of the home ties another minor drawback is that if this new format does what the powers-at-be hope it will there may be fewer Cinderella stories. One of the most common complaints about Davis Cup is that the top names do not participate with enough frequency. Their absence however opens the door for journeymen players some of whom rarely are able to venture outside of the Challengers or qualifying rounds to step into their shoes. Over the years fans have seen more than a few of these competitors really rise to the occasion to achieve what will be the crowning moments of their careers.
