SERENA WINS AUSTRALIAN OPEN WITH NEW nCODE RACKET
Wilson Tennis Racket designed by Design Concepts used to win 2005 Australian Open
[CHICAGO]- Serena Williams captured her seventh Grand Slam using the new Wilson n3 nCode racket, which she switched to just before playing in the Australian Open. The final round was not only a showdown between Williams and Lindsay Davenport but also a showcase of nCode “potential unlocked” as both players converted to new Wilson nCode rackets, Davenport using the new nTour racket that Wilson just launched.
The following is an EXCERPT from the September 2004 Issue of Tennis Magazine:
How It Tested: Today’s racquets are made of billions of woven graphite fibers that have microscopic spaces between them. In the n5, Wilson fills these gaps with silicone oxide crystals, claiming this process increases the frame’s stability and power as well as ensuring that the racquet will play better, longer.
