    Got the e-mail from Wilson, I know hoosierbr dsid a post saying he almost lifetime but now its official in case ya didn't know!

    There was talk he was moving to Babolat at one point, and I hate the way Wilson say "he used the n-code since Wimbledon 2004" and he uses "Wilson strings". But who cares!:cool:

    actually, its not the guy getting lucky but wilson, i bet that the major income of weilson is because of federer so getting in agrement for federer to sue wilson for a ilfetime is really good for wilson, for federer is not big deal since he could buy all the stuff he needs with all the money he has, so its wilson getting the thing here, plus federer is getting money out of that!

    I think that Wilson lucked out more than Federer did.

    I mean what other big name Men's player is using Wilson at the moment.

    Nadal, Roddick, Ginepri - Babolat
    Coria, Davydenko -Prince
    Agassi, Safin - Head

    Wilson only has: the Bryan Brothers, Keifer, Dent, Gaudio

    So having a big name Men's player using Wilson. It's good business

    Yesterday I saw a saleman sell someone Wilson Sensation strings because Fedrer uses them (they show him on the box) and he is the "best player in the world". The guy bought them because of that, I wish i said something

    Hmm, let's take the French as an example:
    Nadal still in, Roddick gone in the first round, Ginepri gone in the first round
    Coria, didn't play, Davydenko stil in--third round.
    Agassi didn't play, Safin lost in a first round
    Kiefer still in, third round, Gaudio still in--fourth round, Bryan brothers in the third round of doubles, also Mathieu is in the third round as well.

    I think Wilson is doing just fine.

    Wilson and the women

    Wilson had more big name women players than the men. Henin-Hardienne, Davenport, and the Williams sisters. Babolat has quite a following. One of the posters forgot about Ljubicic. Yonex has some good players in its stable as well.

    To be fair Wilson always snap up the #1 players on both sides they seem to do it every time! Think, Fed, Sampras, Henin, Williams, Davenport!
