All Wilson Sunday on WTA Tour
Showing that tennis rackets do help bring results, it will be an all Wilson affair for the singles titles in Palermo and Prague when Wilson Tour Team players Flavia Pennetta, Kaia Kanepi, Agnes Szavay and Barbora Zahlavova Strycova take the court.
“Wilson prides itself on providing the best technology and equipment for each player to help them reach their goals,” said Global Tour Director Massimo Calvelli. “All four players use a different tennis racket from our line and I think that shows the great depth and diversity in our products. We believe we can find the right racket for any player.”

Basalt is a natural volcanic rock. It can be used in manufacturing where it is made into fine gold fibers with incredible vibration resistance. Wilson’s new technology has used these basalt fibers and woven them longitudinally with [K]arophite Black to create one of the most advanced composites in the industry.
