The Classic Competitor: Roger Federer

Roger Federer is one of the top tennis players in the world, possibly of all time. Federer has been using Wilson tennis racquets his whole career in which he held the ATP No. 1 ranking for 237 consecutive weeks.

Federer currently uses the Wilson BLX Pro Staff Six. One 90. This racquet perfectly resembles Federer`s style; classic.  The Pro Staff Six. One 90 is an ideal choice for a player that requires control and spin.

The Screamer: Victoria Azarenka

Victoria Azarenka is the No. 1 ranked female tennis player and also prefers Wilson BLX technology. The twenty-two year old Belarusian player won her first Grand Slam this year, beating Maria Sharapova in the final of the Australian Open.

Although some find Azarenka somewhat annoying due to her loud grunting, she is  an amazing competitor. Her racquet of choice is the BLX Juice 100 which offers incredible power and spin. Since switching to the Juice 100, “Vika the Shrieka” was undefeated in the beginning of this year.

The Threat: Mardy Fish

Mardy Fish is a great American player that has done really well in the past two years.  In April of 2011, the pro and Olympic silver medalist surpassed Andy Roddick to become the American No.1 player.  Mardy Fish is known as an all-court player, giving him an incredible advantage over his competitors.

Fish uses the Wilson BLX Six. One 95 18X20 which is actually one of the most popular tennis racquets on the pro tour. This racquet provides exceptional spin and maximum control with the 18X20 string pattern.

The Ferocious Opponent: Serena Williams

27-time Grand Slam titlist, Serena Williams, is  the best American female player that the tennis community has seen in a long time and has proven herself a fierce competitor. She recently won her 40th WTA title at the Family Circle Cup.

Williams has won every one of her titles with a Wilson tennis racquet and currently uses the Wilson BLX Blade Team which gives her a powerful sweetspot, maneuverability and an exceptional feel.

The Silent Killer: Petra Kvitova

Unlike Victoria Azarenka and Maria Sharapova, Petra Kvitova is virtually silent on the courts. Rather than putting her energy into grunting with every stroke, she saves it for her left-handed serves. Young Kvitova became the first Grand Slam winner born in the 90`s.

Kvitova uses the Wilson Steam 100 BLX which has is more lightweight and offers maximum maneuverability and spin.

With the Basalt material, enhanced frame technology, grommet design and grip concepts, Wilson BLX technology offers an improved experience on the courts…just as the pros!
