Wilson Launches New Visible FX Technology

Wilson Racquet Sports has incorporated a new technology in their [K] Factor Line of frames for 2009.

The next generation of [K] Factor tennis rackets is called FX which means, [K] Factors multiplied. It utilizes a "Quad Shaft" construction in the throat area of the racket with improved distribution of weight. Quad Shaft means the throat of the racket has 4 shafts vs. the conventional 2, which ultimately means more stability. This technology provides the racket with 23% more "torsional" stability and more evenly distributed mass resulting in more control. Four key technologies are incorporated in the FX line: [K]arophite Black, [K]onnector, [K]ontour Yoke, [K]ompact Center. As a result of these technologies, there are three key benefits: increased feel, more strength and stability, and bigger sweet spot. All of these factors contribute to 64% more [K]ontrol.

Wilson Dominates US Open

08USOpen-Poster_Serena.jpgSerena Williams outlasted Jelena Jankovic 6-4, 7-5 Sunday night to win her third U.S. Open championship and ninth Grand Slam title. By capturing the US Open title, she returns to the #1 ranking in the world.

There were four times Williams was a single point from heading to a third set but she was simply relentless with her [K] Blade Team. She took the final four games, and 13 of the last 19 points. Williams took the title without dropping a set the entire tournament. The fourth-seeded Williams finished with 44 winners, 29 more than Jankovic, and smacked serves at up to 120 mph, a 14 mph edge over her opponent's fastest.

It was Williams' first conquest at Flushing Meadows since 2002, and it guaranteed that she will lead the rankings for the first time since a 57-week run ended in August 2003. Williams' previous Grand Slam title came in January 2007, at the Australian Open.

08USOpen-Poster_Federer.jpgRoger Federer used his [K] Six.One 95 and rolled past Andy Murray 6-2, 7-5, 6-2 to win his fifth consecutive U.S. Open championship and 13th major title overall. Federer had 36 winners to Murray's 16, as well as winning 31 of 44 points at the net, compared with 7 of 11 showing by Murray. Federer is the first man since 1924 to win five straight US Open titles as well as the only player to win five consecutive titles in 2 different Grand Slam tournaments─US Open and Wimbledon.

Wilson had many other notable achievements at the 2008 US Open including: Novak Djokovic reached the semifinals with [K] Blade Tour and Venus Williams made it to the quarterfinals with [K] Blade Team. Mardy Fish, Juan Martin del Potro and Gilles Muller all reached the quarterfinals with a [K] Six.One 95 racket. Kei Nishikori reached the 4th round with his [K] Tour and Flavia Pennetta reached the quarterfinals with [K] Blade 98. Juniors also went far with [K] Factor: Melanie Oudin reached junior girls semi-finals with [K] Tour, Filip Kraijnovic and Tsung-Hua Yang reached junior boys semi-finals both with [K] Blade Tour.

Wilson Kicking Butt & Taking Names at the US Open

Wilson's [K] Factor Sweeps Through Week 1 of US Open

Wilson athletes soared through week 1 of the 2008 US Open with their [K] Factor rackets. With his [K] Six.One 95, Mardy Fish beat No. 32 seed Gael Monfils of France 7-5, 6-2, 6-2 in just under 2 hours. Fish soared past Monfils by winning 80 percent of first serve points and hitting 49 winners in Arthur Ashe Stadium. Fish also converted 6 of 13 break point opportunities, as opposed one break of serve for Monfils. He improved to 30-20 on the season (24-12 on hard courts).

18-year-old, Kei Nishikori playing with his [K] Tour, ranked No. 126, is the youngest to reach the round of 16 at the US Open since Marat Safin did it in 1998. To get there, Nishikori knocked out No. 4 seed David Ferrer, a US Open semifinalist last year. Nishikori snatched the first two sets but had to battle to come back to win the hour-long final fifth set. The victory over Ferrer was Nishikori's second over a top-20 player. Earlier this year Nishikori, ranked No. 244 in the world, his earned his first career ATP title, beating James Blake in the final of Del Ray Beach. Nishikori also managed to take a set off Nadal at Queen's Club, just two weeks before Nadal captured the Wimbledon crown. He is also the first Japanese man to reach the US Open's final 16 in the Open era.

No. 17 seed Juan Martin del Potro, with his [K] Six.One 95, became the first teenager to reach the US Open quarterfinals since 2001, as he defeated a fellow Wilson athlete, Kei Nishikori, 6-3, 6-4, 6-3. This was the first time two teenagers met in the fourth round at the US Open since Andy Roddick beat Tommy Robredo seven years ago.
