Wilson’s next generation players, Eugenie Bouchard and Filip Peliwo, made Canadian history this weekend by capturing the 2012 Girls’ and Boys’ Wimbledon Singles titles respectively. Bouchard, playing with her Wilson Steam racket, became the first Canadian to win a junior Wimbledon Singles title and captured the Girls’ Doubles title with Townsend. Fellow Canadian Filip Peliwo won the Boys’ Singles finals with his Wilson Blade 98 racket.
“Eugenie and Filip have a bright future,” said Renaud Vallon, global tour director of Wilson Racquet Sports. “Wilson’s next generation are extremely passionate about the game and are committed to excel. We are proud to support our young players and give them the tools they need, as they continue their pursuit for more wins.”
Bouchard took the opening set in 29 minutes before starting the second set with a break. It took her one hour to earn victory and claim the title that propelled her early career forward with a giant leap.
Peliwo fell behind 5-2 in his first set, but fought back winning five straight games to take the first set. With strong momentum in the second set, the 18-year old powered his way through to a win.
The Wilson Steam is a light weight and powerful frame with great stability for maximum spin. Top tour players Kei Nishikori and Petra Kvitova use the Steam. The Wilson Blade Team flex and pinpoint accuracy make it the racket of choice among top professionals, including Serena and Venus Williams.

G’day from Melbourne!!! Well it’s 2012 and the Wilson team is looking forward to starting off the season well.
It’s been a good start thus far, with Kaia Kanepi and Milos Raonic taking their 2nd career titles this week. Congrats to both of them! With Kaia, it seems like the Wilson Juice tennis racket feels as good we thought it did and she had a great week!!
So today was one of the tougher flights from LAX-Melbourne, simply because it was during the Giants game… as some of you know, that is a tough sacrifice for me… but I guess the Wilson team comes first!! haha
Speaking of the Wilson team, young up and comer Eugenie Bouchard was on my flight to Melbourne… she had a great 2011 in ITF’s…look for her to start making waves on the pro tour this year…
In addition to seeing Genie and her coach, right when I landed in Sydney and sat down to get on my computer to check the Giants score who did I run into? Joel, one of our talented guys in R&D who help make sure our rackets are top notch!!! The photo above is how we look after 14+ hours of flying…. we look tired and stinky!! haha Least my Giants shirt was cool looking!! 😛
So got to the hotel and met up with Clement and Jacob gets here later tonight…. we are going to go check on the boxes to see everything made it and make sure nothing got held up at customs..(something always does!)
Goal for today… stay up till 9pm to limit screwy jet lag!!
