Volkl's DNX Technology - Cool S#%&

I have not payed with these racquets (hint hint Volkl), but boy does the technology sound cool. The German company has developed DNX Technology - a new unique material structure featuring high-strength micro tube construction that is 25 times stronger than regular carbon fibers. Its a whole new material class whose properties represent the fourth dimension of carbon (whatever that means). Basically, super strength characteristics.

James Blake is working with Prince to design a racquet

They are working with me and we're working together, and I'm extremely excited about it because it's kind of the first time I've had a real opportunity to work with the designers, with the people who kind of tailor make them for me," Blake told Tennis Week in a recent interview. "I really do hope, and in a lot of the tests, Tom Ross who I work with at Prince that does the racquets, has told me that he's made these models for me and we're getting closer to the one that's going to be on the shelves and stuff. He's kind of had a few other people trying them, and they all seem to like it. It's exciting to me to know that people are liking what I like in terms of a racquet."

Wilson signs on as official ball of WTT

02/17/06 - World TeamTennis (WTT)

Following the success this past year with its nCode technology, Wilson becomes the ball of record for Billy Jean King's World Team Tennis. Frankly, I have no idea how this league survives, but indeed it does...

BTW - 6, count'em, 6 slams in 2005 were with Wilson nCodes...
- Serena Williams (n3) Australian Open
- Justine Henin-Hardenne (nTour) French Open
- Roger Federer (nSix-One Tour) Wimbledon and US Open
- Venus Williams (n4) Wimbledon
- Bryan Brothers (nPro Surge) US Open

Playing Without a Net

I apologize for the lack of postings. No excuses, for those who are actually coming to WATR (all two of you...not counting Jay and Scott). But I'm back in business!

Here are some VERY cool shots of Andre Agassi and Roger Federer playing on the tennis court at the Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai, UAE. The hotel is known as the best in the world...looks like it may live up to the hype...

Not a lot to say, the pics truly speak for themselves, except that my guess is they don't chase the balls...

Visit the Burj Al Arab hotel website

The Best of the Blogpire & ReallyNatural.com

Reallynatural Blogad-1We're pretty excited here around the Blogpire. Over the past few months we've been cooking up a new site to bring to you - ReallyNatural.com. If you need tips on living naturally (Birkenstocks not required) - then this is the site for you. ReallyNatural.com is your resource for product reviews of all of those consumer food, health and beauty, and household goods marketed as 'natural', 'organic' and 'environmentally friendly'.

You'll learn as Liesel and Mikko test the waters and offer tips on what it means to 'live naturally.' And where else are you going to find a review on Ecover Ecological Toilet Bowl Cleaner or a nice Organic Wine: 2004 Jelu Malbec and perhaps your didn't buy the right gift on Valentine's Day and should have looked into Chocolate Bars For Your Eco-Conscious Honey. Whatever you're need to be more natural - ReallyNatural.com will have it.

Now on with the Best of the Blogpire!
