Music, Memories & Tennis Players

Grigor Dimitrov, DJ Matt Roan & E Six

Happy Memorial Day to all our American Wilson Tennis people out there!

Thank you to all the great men and women who have served our great country & protect our freedom.

Ok, so it’s 80 degrees and Chicago is coming alive! We hit the courts today (almost passed out, but whatever!) and it started getting me a bit nostalgic of the times I spent on court, all the tournaments, off court shenanigans, the matches I played, the memories that are built around tennis. It seems to me with every great memory or moment, I can always recall a song that reminds me of that time in my life.

A trip to Italy when I was 16, playing French warm up tournaments in Santa Croce listening to Dr.Dre & Led Zep before matches (weird combo, I know)……watching one of my friends have to squat a bike rack cause the coach was unhappy she lost to Clijsters (he said she sucked, ha) and I was listening to Tom Petty laughing…

You get the idea…..now since we are deep into the French Open and leading into the summer, Wimby ahead….we wanted to share with you a great Summer Vacation Mix by our friends at Crossfader King & Dj Matt Roan.

Download it here!!! Make your own moments with this great mix.

Hope your summer is filled with great memories, aces and thunderous beats!

Until later, Tracy

No doubt, the boys had fun shooting this video as much as I did! 🙂

Day 4/5- Paris 2011

Hey all,

Hope you are having a great night. Well, it’s 2am here and yes, I have not slept much still, but tonight it was for a great reason, it was Wilson Tour Manager Mario Vergara’s 30th birthday!! 🙂 Happy Bday Mario!

Today was a good day at the office, 1st round matches started and Wilson Next Gen’rs Kei Nishikori and Simona Halep won their matches today and tomorrow will only get better.

Player service has been going well, we had Petra Kvitova, Robert Lindstedt, Horia Tecau, Melanie Oudin, and many more stop by……it is always fun catching up with everyone and seeing them relaxed, away from the intensity of the tournament. We also like to get some of our Wilson Tennis Challenges in…. the players love doing these challenges and even other players around the tournament have noticed how many times I lose in the Wilson Pro Overgrip Challenge!!! haha Pro Overgrip is definitely the most popular choice for the players on court and in challenges!! I think it’s cause they know they have a 99.9% chance of winning!! 😉

Anyway, speaking of challenges, check out this one with Wilson Exclusive athlete Corinna Dentoni.

Enjoy and until tomorrow….Tracy
