I've always found it best to use my own balls.

But, when I play tennis, I always use Penn.

saw that one coming from you even before I clicked on this thread, lol

Anyway, I usually use Penn balls but I'd like to try the Slazenger and Roland Garros ones!

azarenka - pavlyuchenkova - li - jankovic
garcia - bencic - paszek - rus - kanepi - kuznetsova - stephens
bouchard - karatantcheva - larcher de brito - voegele - lim - mladenovic

mary pierce - forever #1
vaidisova - kournikova - golovin - henin
the boys - federer - gasquet - del potro - haase - nishikori

I use Slazenger's. The same ones that they use at the AO.

Slazenger - a solid ball, but I found them to have a heavier feel than other balls.

Dunlops - Conversely seem to play a little lighter than other balls.

Wilson - Good quality and fine for Cali hard courts

Penn - Used to be very light playing balls, but quality improved and they seem to be the most prolifically used balls in Cali.

My balls - Only for those special occasions.
