Belinda Bencic signs head to toe deal with yonex

Speaking of Red Rock, this announcer calling the matches on TC is HORRIBLE. Ken Thomas is his name. He mis-pronounces players names, and it's just him calling alone, so it's like a non-stop opinion fest. I have to mute my TV just to watch the matches.
And he doesn't stop talking, AT ALL.
I concur. Fanny Stollar and Lauren Davis both playing without Wilson stencil.

I don't think the stringer has stencils, nobody has them. Watson didn't have one on her Dunlop frame either.
Technically the WTA season is over.

So a lot of these girls are free agents now in the lameduck period until season begins end of next month. Not saying you're wrong, but a lot of these girls who aren't high ranked don't have long term endorsement deals like the top players. Remember even Halep was wearing a non-branded dress for AO last year.

I know at the WTA venue I string for, the girls are responsible for stenciling if they want it. There is usually only one or two stringers at these tier 1 events and they are booked. I don't think all WTA contracts are co-terminus at year end. :)

Lol. I was thinking the same. Makes you appreciate the good commentators we have.

Yes, that is it. Most players actually do not carry their own stencils as the stringing rooms usually have them. This is a small tournament using local stringers and clearly they do not have stencils as many contracted players are playing without stencils. Nothing more should be read into this.
