This looks like the worst mirror and scamming site I've ever seen...

Hopefully TW can get this illegitimate site shut down soon.

Ah, what do you mean - this ain't the record industry. You can copy a site as much as you want, as long as it's a different name, it's all fine. The layout doesn't matter. And whether they're selling real or fake racquets doesn't give anybody to shut them down. They might be selling them a tad bit cheaper than TW and have authentic racquets or they all might be asian rip offs. But it doesn't matter, TW isn't the internet patrol, they're a business, they don't have the power to shut them down.

Hopefully TW can get this illegitimate site shut down soon.

Um, if you steal photos and ad copy, as this site has, you're absolutely violating copyright. I don't know how things work with China, but if this were an American company, I'm quite sure that TW could get the site shut down if they wanted.

Well, technically speaking, knowingly selling fake racquets is what the legal profession refers to as a "crime." So yes, somebody does have the right to shut them down. It may not be practical to pursue it, because it's China. But it's still a crime.
