i know exactly how you feel... my budy brought two of these old spalding rackets that were like extremly heavy and had a tiny head on them. I had a huge serve with them and a ton of power on my forhand. But it was not good for my two handed backhand. And slazenger makes good tennis balls.

Never heard of Slazenger? Really?

Then you must be VERY NEW to tennis. No big deal. The brand is almost dead and gone, hopefully in hybernation. If not for Wimbledon and Tim Henman (heard of him?) the brand might have been long gone.

Slazenger makes good stuff, especially tennis balls, yes. The brand has been around since when ... I don't know. I learnt tennis when I was 10 and now I'm 40+ and the brand's been around before that, long before. So you can probably guess this is an old brand.

And now that you've learnt about an English brand, please type in proper English. Learning to do things right and proper will reward you in the long run.

Slazenger has been the official ball used at Wimbledon since 1902. So 105 years! In fact, the company has been around since the 1870's.

Slazenger and Dunlop were part of the same company but that company was itself bought out by a sporting goods retailer in Europe a few years ago.

I used the Slazenger Wimbledon and it died in 2 hours of hitting. Maybe the open is a better ball.
