Keothavong uses All New Wilson Equipment in Successful Comeback
In her first main draw event after more than six months out with injury, Anne Keothavong used her Wilson Tour BLX tennis racket to reach the Cellular South Cup semifinals in Memphis.
As part of her comeback from knee surgery, Keothavong was looking for a fresh start in 2010, so she worked closely with the Wilson team to find the right equipment to make sure she would make a strong return.
Now equipped with a new Wilson BLX racket, the new Wilson shoes and all Wilson apparel, she walked onto the Memphis courts with a new found confidence.
“I am excited to add Wilson apparel and footwear to my arsenal,” said Keothavong. “Coming back from a knee injury, it was extremely important for me to find the right equipment to give me the additional support and cushion I need and my Wilson’s are perfect! Wilson has been the leader in design and innovation in tennis rackets and now they have raised the bar with the new clothes and footwear,” says Keothavong.
Playing aggressively and looking cool in her new attire, Keothavong sealed her win over the WTA Tour world #87 Sprem in an hour and 11 minutes to reach her second Memphis semifinal.
“Anne’s determination and commitment to excellence is simply amazing,” said Claire Ortiz, Wilson Global Director of Apparel and Footwear. “This is just the start of her resurgence on tour and we are proud to have her in Wilson from head to toe.”
Anne Keothavong will be in action in Indian Wells for the BNP Paribas starting March 10.
