The Week at Wilson with Blair Rickers: May 6th

Hello All,

A couple of quick notes for this week:

Another Sales Meeting

I’m away all next week at a sales meeting in Chicago.  If you have any product issues please give Kate a call at 1-800-267-7506 ext 271.  If you need to reach me, e-mail is the best option.

Happy Mother’s Day

Best wishes to all the Mom’s out there.  You all rock.

Team Wilson Smoking

As Roger Federer struggles to maintain the incredible standard he has set for himself, we are witnessing some great results from the next wave of Wilson players.  Milos Raonic (#24 – Blade 98), Kei Nishikori (#46 – Tour Limited BLX) and Grigor Dimitrov (#66 – SixOne Tour) are all making strong statements about their future on the tour.  Juan Martin Del Potro (SixOne 95) is rounding back into shape after a long battle with injuries.  Outstanding performances have also been recently turned in by Julia Georges (Pro Open BLX), Michael Llodra (Pro Tour BLX), Bethanie Mattek-Sands (Tour BLX), Flavio Cipolla (SixOne 95), Thomaz Bellucci (SixOne 95) and Petra Kvitova (Tour BLX).  Great to see Alberta Brianti get her first tour win with the Blade 98 Pink BLX.  I think Roger still has some gas in the tank.  You should never under estimate the heart of a champion.  Stay updated with all the tour news by joining Wilson on Facebook.

We are also seeing some great results with our juniors here in Ontario.  Congratulations to all.  Also, we should give a shout out to Kathy Carter who represented Canada in the World Racketlon Championships.

Have a great week.  I’ll get back to you soon with a full report from our sales meeting.
