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!!
