Warmup equipment: Once again you don't want to step onto the court for your match with cold muscles and without being warmed up. A jumprope can help get your legs ready while a resistance band is great for warming up your arm and shoulder. A lot of players even keep a football in their bag to throw around between matches. Tossing a football around is especially good because it replicates and helps improve your service motion.
“Namd”Graphite: Over power with heavy drives. With “Namd” graphite’s unique flex and fast frame snapback players can grip the ball and fire-off aggressive attacking spin. The graphite fibers are covered with highly-bondable carbon nanotubes allowing for better cohesion with the resin. “Namd” combines “soft” and “hard” properties giving the shaft tougher flexibility and resilience for increased shaft torque which applies high levels of power and spin to the ball.
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.
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.
