Do you have a nickname?

La Goff

What is your favorite type of chocolate?

I hope to be at the top of the sport competing for Grand Slams.  I have a lot of work to do but that is where I would like to see myself in five years.

What do you love about your Wilson Blade 98 tennis racket?

I feel like my Blade gives me the perfect balance of power and control.  I feel comfortable playing from the anywhere on the court and I think a lot of that has to do with my racquet.

Wilson players are ready for the grass courts of the All England Club after taking five out of the eight titles that were up for grabs this past week.

In an all Wilson BLX battle, Justine Henin swung her Tour BLX tennis racket to defeat Six.One Team BLX player Andrea Petkovic 3-6 6-3 6-4 to take the UNICEF Open singles title in  ‘s-Hertogenbosch.

Wilson swept doubles action in ‘s-Hertogenbosch as Alla Kudryavtseva (Blade Team) and Anastasia Rodionova (Pro Open BLX) defeated King/Shvedova 3-6 6-3 10-6 for the Women’s title. Using their Six.One 95 BLX tennis rackets, Robert Lindstedt and Horia Tecau defeated #1 seeds Dlouhy/Paes 1-6 7-5 10-7 to take the UNICEF Open Men’s Doubles title.

In Eastbourne, Ekaterina Makarova swung her Tour BLX racket through eight matches to win her first WTA Tour title in Eastbourne. Makarova defeated five Top 20 players, including Azarenka 7-6(5) 6-4 in the final, to become the first qualifier ever to win the AEGON International title.

Using his Pro Tour BLX racket, Michael Llodra served and volleyed his way to defeat Garcia-Lopez 7-5 6-2 and take the AEGON International title in Eastbourne.

“Preparation for the grass court season is extremely short, so it’s very important for our players to play as many matches as possible,” said Wilson Global Tour Director Massimo Calvelli. “To see great results like this leading into Wimbledon bodes well for our team.”

Using her Wilson Tour BLX racket, Henin utilized her powerful groundstrokes and speed to dictate play.

“It was an intense match and I am happy to be playing at this level,” said Henin. “It’s feels great to compete well and I am looking forward to my next match.”

Henin will now take on Kleybanova.

Wilson players Roger Federer and Serena Williams on Top of the World Tennis Ranks

Wilson players Roger Federer and Serena Williams sit atop the professional tennis ranks.

Roger Federer is #1 on the ATP World Tour and continues to be nothing less than extraordinary.  Earlier this year, Roger made his mark on tennis history as he used his Wilson [K]Six-One Tour racket to win Roland Garros and Wimbledon to lift his major title count to a record 15 Grand Slam titles.

“This year has been fantastic for me and I look forward to finishing the year on a successful note,” said Roger Federer, the greatest player of all time. Federer owns many records, most notably the record for most consecutive weeks at number one (237), most consecutive major finals appearances (10) and most consecutive semifinals appearances at a major (22).

Roger is scheduled to be in action in Basel, Paris and at the ATP World Tour Finals in London on November 22nd when the eight best players in the men’s game compete for the ATP World Tour title.

Serena Williams regained her world #1 WTA Tour ranking after using her [K]Blade Team racket to reach the Round of 16 at the China Open last week.

Williams now has the chance to add to her career total of 72 weeks at number one. “Obviously I’m happy to be there because I’ve worked so hard this year to get there. I think I’ve earned it,” Williams said.

It has been a great year for Serena as she took the Australian Open and Wimbledon singles titles. She has also had success on the doubles court with sister Venus as they took 3 of the 4 Grand Slam Women’s Doubles titles in 2009.

“Wilson’s tennis history is unparalleled,” says Wilson Tour Director Massimo Calvelli. “Roger and Serena are a tremendous part of the Wilson tennis heritage and we are extremely proud to have them on the Wilson team.”

2010 promises to be an outstanding year for the Wilson Tour Team.
