Success Among Major Racquet Companies

Since 2000:

#1 Players:

Wilson - Davenport, Venus, Serena, JHH
Head-
Prince- Capriati, Sharapova
Babolat- Clijsters
Yonex- Hingis
Dunlop- Mauresmo

GS Winners:
Wilson - Davenport, Venus, Serena, JHH
Head- Myskina, Kuznetsova
Prince- Capriati, Sharapova
Babolat- Clijsters
Yonex- Pierce
Dunlop -Mauresmo


does the racquet make a difference, or is it the players? Wilson is obviously the most successful racquet company? Is it their technology or the players?

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Serena.

On the ATP, Sampras & Federer dominates with Wilson on their hands!!!!!

i'm not sure that's the right way to look at it.
i'll have a thinky ang get back to you about it - but i'm thinking something about tierIII-IV title winners, as thier power isn't enough to bounce off regardless of any company.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

Yes, the reason Peng beat Clijsters was because she was using Wilson

Yonex (Seles) > Wilson (S.Williams)

8 > 7 (We don't count Monica's 1990 RG title because she won it playing with a Prince stick)

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.

I reckon it comes down to 99% racquet technology and 1% player skill. What do you think?

What is your definition of an "elite" player? Mine does not include players ranked #53 and #97.

#1 Amelie Mauresmo--Dunlop M-Fil 300
#2 Justine Henin-Hardenne--Wilson nCode nTour Two
#3 Maria Sharapova--Prince O3 White
#4 Svetlana Kuznetsova--Head Flexpoint Instinct
#5 Nadia Petrova--Babolat Pure Storm MP
#6 Kim Clijsters--Babolat Pure Drive
#7 Elena Dementieva--Yonex RDS 001
#8 Martina Hingis--Yonex NanoSpeed RQ 7
#9 Patty Schnyder--Head Flexpoint Prestige
#10 Dinara Safina--Babolat Pure Storm MP


By my definition of an "elite" player, Babolat is the most successful racquet manufacturer.
