Happy 30th birthday to the Wilson PS85
 
The Wilson Prostaff 85, first sold in 1983 and still going strong 30 year later.

Used to win at least 29* major singles titles and a few doubles also.


*Rough calcs: Sampras 14, Edberg 6, Pierce 1, Courier 4, Evert 4 (of her 18 majors) = 29. Plus Edberg won 3 doubles majors with it too.

Don't forget Jim Grabb winning a couple of GS dubs titles with it.

Now let's hope Wilson will finally acknowledge the fact that the first PS came from a Belgium factory.
Officially, even after 30 years, they started manufacture this icon in Chicago.
