    I rememebered reading a couple of weeks ago that people here were critizising that no pros are currently using Volkl racquets. Well, if you have watched French Open this morning you would have seen Shenay Perry using a Volkl racquet. She has now reached the 3rd round of French Open and has been ranked as high as 69 in the world. So, I hope this lays to rest on question that pros don't use Volkls.

    Well yes, indeed every racquet company has pros who use their racquets. But are Shenay Perry and Kevin Kim big names? No. These are not people you would favor in anyway to win big events or even smaller ones. If either of these two can break into the higher ranks, then perhaps Volkl will gain more exposure, but this is not the case right now.

    But those really are small names. I think currently their most successful player would be Radek Stepanek who uses a DNX 9 (or at least a paintjob of one). Tati Golovin used to use a Volkl but is now using some Wilson frame (it was the nVision but I think she switched to the n4 recently).

    Exposure is the key word. That thread talked about how Volkl sponsors more players than Yonex, but generally speaking, those 4 Yonex players in the draw get deeper in tournaments than those 10+ Volkl players.
