Sunscreen: This is another no-brainer to bring to the court for players that play outdoors. Skin damage affects way too many tennis players so make sure you lather up and protect yourself from the sun when you go out on court. There are some great ones that are water and sweat-resistant and also absorb into the skin quickly. Once again don't be too cool to protect yourself from the sun.
Both of those solutions boil down to money. Naturally for many in a 128-player draw that first round prize money is a big deal which is why they will show up to play even if they go in knowing they are unfit and may have to pull the plug mid-match. As a concession to that driving factor players will now be allowed to collect fifty percent if they withdraw after noon on site on Thursday but before the main draw begins. Coupled with this players who are knowingly unfit to play and still opt to compete could face a fine up to the total amount of their first-round prize money if they fail to finish the match or “perform below professional standards.” Together these two rules should encourage players to make the smart choice and subsequently improve the overall optics of the sport.
Advances in materials equipment conditioning and training have increased the pace of today’s game. Players look for any edge over their opponents: every gram counts. Bringing lightness to tennis footwear presents a unique challenge. Players not only need speed but just as importantly they also need support.
To better understand how CV technology could aid performance tennis players Wilson collaborated with the University of Minnesota's School of Kinesiology. The School conducted a study with competitive collegiate players men and women to determine if playing with a Wilson racket with CV delivered meaningful benefits. Study results showed that athletes playing with a Wilson tennis racket with CV experienced less muscle fatigue and more energy particularly in late sets or long training sessions and as a result showed improved control over their shots and quicker recovery after training and matches.
