Arguably the biggest and most exciting change to the sport will not actually take place for another season but it will likely be well worth the wait. The majors have been seeding thirty-two players since 2001 but they will be reverting back to seeding just sixteen come 2019. One of the biggest complaints about the slams is that in most cases the top players predominantly waltz through the opening rounds. Often it feels like the majors do not really get going until the middle weekend as that is when the better matches start to take shape. While seeding only sixteen means that the seeds will collide even later it also increases the odds of more intriguing matches and upsets occurring throughout the whole event rather than primarily the back half of it. Often the proverbial cream will still rise to the top but it should be more entertaining watching it all unfold.
“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.”
