Thomaz Bellucci plays with the Wilson Six.One 95 BLX tennis racquet

Wilson’s next generation of tour players are ready to make their presence felt on tour.

This week, Thomaz Bellucci swung his Wilson Six.One 95 BLX tennis racquet to reach his first ATP World Tour Masters Series series semifinal after having back to back Top 10 wins over Murray and Berdych.

Swinging his Wilson Tour BLX racquet, Kei Nishikori is at a career high #46 on ATP World Tour, assisted by a finals appearance in Houston and reaching the Round of 16 in Barcelona.

Grigor Dimitrov is at a career high #66 on the ATP World Tour. Playing with his Wilson Six.One Tour BLX tennis racquet, Grigor has made great strides, reaching his first ATP World Tour quarterfinals in Munich.

Serving it up with his Wilson Blade 98, Milos Raonic finds himself one step closer to the Top 20. After reaching the semifinals of Estoril and improving his 2011 match record to 23-8, Milos is now at a career high #25 on the ATP World Tour.

“It’s fantastic to see our young players start to find their groove,” said Wilson Global Tour Director Renaud Vallon. “It’s coming at an exciting time leading into the French Open and we hope to see them amaze some people.”

Wilson Tour Team Off to a Good Start in 2010

Following an outstanding 2009 where Roger Federer and Serena Williams finished atop the ATP and WTA Tour rankings, the Wilson Tour Team is off to a great start in 2010

In her first tournament since May 2008, Justine Henin used her new Wilson Tour BLX racket to reach the finals of Brisbane.

“This was a big step for me. After leaving for so long, to walk out on the court with such a big crowd… it was very emotional,” Henin said. “I can be positive about this tournament, but I still see a lot of things to work on and this week was only the beginning.”

In Auckland, Flavia Pennetta used her Blade 98 racket as she made easy work of this week’s opponents, not dropping a set en route to the finals of the ASB Classic.

In doubles action, Natalie Grandin used her Tour racket as she reached the finals of Auckland doubles with partner Granville.

“It is great to see many of our players have success as they gear up for the Australian Open,” says Massimo Calvelli. “We look forward to watching Justine and our entire team make their mark on tour this year.”

This week:

Serena Williams, Flavia Pennetta, Agnes Szavay, Leonardo Mayer, and Mardy Fish are in action in Sydney.

Alona Bondarenko, Kateryna Bondarenko, Sara Errani, Carla Suarez Navarro and Jelena Dokic are playing in Hobart.

Philipp Kohlschreiber, Thomaz Bellucci and Arnaud Clement take the court in Auckland.

Using their Wilson [K]Six-One 95 rackets, ATP World Tour No. 51 Andreas Beck and qualifier Thomaz Bellucci battled it out on Sunday to see who would take home their first ATP Tour singles title at the Allianz Suisse Open Gstaad. 

Thomaz Bellucci defeated Beck 64 76(2) in the final to win his first ATP Tour title. Bellucci had a huge week, as he played the upset king defeating #1 seed Wawrinka, #3 seed Russian Andreev, and #6 seed Wilson player Nicolas Kiefer en route to the finals. With this title win, Thomaz became the first Brazilian to win an ATP Tour title since 2004 and also returns to the top 100 on the ATP Tour rankings.

On the WTA Tour side, it was an all Wilson doubles final in Stanford as [K]Blade Team players, Venus and Serena Williams defeated [K]Tour player Yung-Jan Chan and [K]Pro Open player Monica Niculescu 64 61 for the Bank of the West Classic title. Venus Williams also reached the finals of the singles before falling to Bartoli in a tough fought three-setter.

In Istanbul, Lucie Hradecka had a successful week as she reached the finals of singles and took the doubles title with Voracova. Using her [K]Tour to victory, Hradecka now owns a total of seven WTA Tour Doubles titles.

“It was another great week for the Wilson Tour Team. It’s fantastic to see many of our players having success through the US Open Series and we look forward to the weeks ahead,” says Massimo Calvelli, Wilson Tour Director.

This week the WTA Tour stops in Los Angeles and the ATP Tour is headed to Washington DC.
