Finally pro-quality tennis bags from Head, Wilson, Prince & Dunlop

Tennis Magazine alerted us to a tidbit of information we did not know but wish we had.

Vintage Tennis Friday - Evonne Goolagong gets No. 1 ranking after 30 years!


Evonne Goolagong Cawley, the former World No. 1 Australian female tennis player, and one of the world's leading players in the 1970s and early 1980s. She won 14 Grand Slam titles: seven in singles (four Australian Open, two Wimbledon and one French Open), six in women's doubles, and one in mixed doubles. But she hadn't been given the #1 ranking back in the day. But that travesty is finally over.

Goolagong swung a classic Dunlop wooden racquet. While we couldn't find the vintage articles, you can check out Dunlop Tennis Products here.

Here's the full article:

SUNRISE BEACH, Australia (AP) -Evonne Goolagong finally made it to No. 1, although the honor was 30 years late in coming.

The Australian tennis star was told by the WTA Tour that she should have been top-ranked for a two-week period in 1976. That was a stretch in which she was in the middle of winning six tournaments, including the Australian Open and the season-ending Virginia Slims Championship.

But when some tournament records were transferred to a computer in 1976, all of Goolagong's points were not entered and she never received the top ranking, the WTA said.

The WTA has amended its records, making Goolagong the 16th No. 1 player since the introduction of tour computer rankings in 1975.

Two weeks ago, the 56-year-old Goolagong received a trophy from the WTA that is now displayed in her oceanside home.

``I'm very proud of the achievement,'' Goolagong told The Associated Press. ``I was on a roll for that stretch in 1976. It was a great surprise to hear after all these years.''

A recent search of the rankings archive in St. Petersburg, Fla., found several paper records were missing between April and July 1976.

Rankings were calculated twice weekly until 1990 - they are done weekly now - and it was discovered Goolagong overtook Chris Evert by 0.8 points after the Aussie's victory in the Virginia Slims in Los Angeles in late April 1976, before Evert regained the crown May 10.

``Unfortunately our record-keeping wasn't perfect in those early days of women's tennis and our ranking system was viewed as a means of just accepting tournament entries,'' WTA Tour chief executive and chairman Larry Scott said.

``It wasn't until the early 1980s that the media and players started to pay attention to the changes in the rankings during the year as opposed to only the end-of-season rankings.''

Goolagong reached the finals of 16 of 24 Grand Slam singles tournaments from 1971 to 1976, winning five of them. She won Wimbledon titles nine years apart - in 1971 and 1980 - to equal Bill Tilden's mark for having the longest gaps between championships at the All-England Club. She has seven Grand Slam singles titles overall.

Goolagong retired in 1985 and lived in the United States - at Hilton Head, S.C., and Naples, Fla. - until moving back to Australia in 1992.

Now, Goolagong is frequently seen power walking in the streets around her Sunrise Beach home north of Brisbane. She and husband Roger Cawley organize tennis camps for Aboriginal youths. During next month's Australian Open, 15 young athletes from across Australia will be flown in for a camp outside Melbourne.

Dunlop, Fischer, Head, Technifibre & Volkl - All for $129.99

Five great racquets...five great brands...one great price. All of these terrific sticks are on sale for $129.99.

Dunlop M Fil 200
Ideally suited for players with aggressive, long strokes.
Recommended for the 5.0-7.0 NTRP level players. This racquet has Dunlop's M-Fil (Multi Filiament) Technology. Which to the technologically challenged includes: Carbon, S-Fibre and Magnesium are combined into the hitting zone of the racquet head to enhance the touch and feel of the racquet where and when you need it most = at the moment of ball contact.


Fischer GDS Vision
Best suited for players with shorter, compact strokes looking for power. Recommended for the 3.0-4.5 NTRP level players. The latest technology in vibration control! A specially calculated matrix structure harmonizes irregular vibration patterns and converts excess energy into higher velocity rebounds. The feedback in these rackets is unprecedented and tuned to perfection.


Head Flexpoint 4
Ideally suited for players with moderate, powerful strokes. Recommended for the 3.0-4.5 NTRP level players. Head's Liquidmetal material is applied to four strategic areas of the racquet’s head and it is the only material that utilizes all the energy your swing generates. No energy is lost on ball impact due to its liquid atomic structure.



Tecnifibre T Fight 315
Ideally suited for players with aggressive, long strokes. Recommended for the 4.5+ NTRP level players. Technifibre's Texalium technology, developed by Hexcel, is primarily used in the aircraft and spacecraft industries. This composite fiber with its specific weave pattern creates strength while being lightweight. Tecnifibre achieves desired benefits bt using Texalium reinforcements at key positions on the tennis racquet frame.


Volkl Tour 10 Gen II Mid Plus
Ideally suited for players with aggressive, long strokes.
Recommended for the 5.0-7.0 NTRP level players. The dense string pattern in the racquet's sweetspot ensures that power is controllable. Balls hit outside the sweetspot maintain optimal power and comfort thanks to the more open string bed. It also includes a two part racquet shaft and TechnoGel surrounded by EVA (Ethyl Vinyl Acetate). This is visible technology you can actually see through the butt cap of the racquet. Designed to dampen vibration without sacrificing touch.

Dunlop M-Fil 300

Dunlop...the brand of McEnroe and Graf...but also a brand I remember as being really f-ing heavy...like a club. Not so with the newest installment of the M-Fil series, first seen in 2005 when Dunlop came back on the racket scene. If I were to describe this in one word, it would be "value." The stick is only 100 bucks, which these days is cheap. Especially if you consider the quality construction (its made of carbon, t-fiber and tungsten steel). It sports a 98 sq. inch head (on the smaller side), and is 10.3 ounces (pretty light). So for the intermediate to advanced players, this looks pretty solid.
