ATP’s number 6 player in the world, Tomas Berdych, will now be playing in HEAD tennis shoes starting next week at the BNP Paribas Masters in Paris.
“The new HEAD Sprint Pro is among the best in the game and I am very happy with the outcome of the shoe. I am already playing with HEAD racquets and have always felt very much at home with the company, so wearing HEAD footwear is a natural choice for me as I know I can rely on the product.” – Tomas Berdych
Our playtesters have just started playtesting these shoes and the initial feedback is great! These shoes come in a lightweight, yet durable package while combining speed with stability. Featuring the HEAD Trinergy technology, this sharp looking shoe is designed to absorb energy on impact and transfer it from the heel to the forefoot, and then release that energy to maximize the upward motion and energy into your next step.
These shoes are great for aggressive movers who don’t want to sacrifice any style or performance! Keep an eye out for these at Tennis Warehouse in January 2014!
While you won’t normally catch me rocking pink apparel, I definitely will always make an exception for Breast Cancer Awareness month this October. And I hate to admit it, I have to face the facts that it is no longer summer and the warm weather is long gone. Therefore, I picked one of my favorite sweatshirts that has come out all year, the Under Armour Power in Pink Fighter Hoodie. In fact, TW Playtester Michelle loves it so much she is now a proud owner of the sweatshirt. There are so many things I love about this hoodie. The first is how soft and comfortable it is. I honestly would never take it off. I also love the heather grey color combined with the pop of pink on the hood. Lastly, I love the inspirational message of “She’s a fighter” going down the right sleeve as well as the pink ribbon on the hood.
Saturday was a long day! When I woke up to get ready for my 9 am match, it was in the 40s and windy. This definitely was not the ideal match conditions I was expecting or wanted, but I was ready to battle. My opponent was a very good college player and spent some time on the futures circuit. Last year, we met in the semi-final and within the first 2 or 3 games I hurt my ankle really bad and somehow managed to take the second set, but lost 6-3 in the third. I figured if I played well this time around, I should be able to win in 2 relatively close sets unless I was not playing well.
I started off very energized and playing very well. I was taking control of the points and moving him around a lot, and found myself up 4-0, cruising. I was very confident that it was going to be my day, and gain some revenge for my loss and his antics after last year. But, after I won the first set 6-2, I was starting to miss a little more and was down 0-1 serving and down in the game. He made a bad call and though I don’t believe it affected me, it seemed from that very moment on, I was never quite the same as I was in the first set. Continue reading →
