    How about stocking some Asics Gel Resolution 2E Wide version. Near impossible to find a wide fitting tennis shoe in Australia at moment. This model is genuinely wide also, so I'm sure would appeal to many players.
    Ashaway ZX zyex would be nice to have in Aus also.

    My wish list for Australia are:
    1. Racquets available in 4 5/8 grip sizes
    2. Pacific Tennis racquets as per TWE
    3. Pro Kennex Racquets as per TWE
    4. Classic racquets such as C 10 Pro, Prince Original Grsphite, Dunlop reissues, Babolat Pure Storm 95 in tour specs
    5. Prices more closely linked to US prices plus exchange rate, some racquets are a lot more than that.

    A better range of 2e or wide options in tennis shoes. It has been nothing short of ridiculous how hard it has been to find wide tennis shoes that are even wearable here.

    Siobhan,
    Longtime TW USA client here and TT forum reader. Moved here to Melb from Dallas, TX in 2008. Some gripes:
    1) Pricing: I still send quite a bit of business to TW USA (i travel to the US on work once a year and have colleagues coming here once/twice a year) mainly on account of advantageous pricing (despite the depressed AUD). With TW acquiring TennisOnly here, I was really, really hoping that TO would be able to leverage the purchasing power of TW and break the cycle of rip-off pricing that the distributors have in Aus, which result in disproportionately high pricing. Hasn't happened yet; hopeful that it'll happen soon.
    2) Range: One of the most popular strings in the multifilament range (esply as a cross) is the Technifibre NRG2. Sadly, Technifibre doesn't seem to have much of a presence here and if I want to purchase a reel of NRG2, it usually becomes a special order that would set me back by about $AUD400 (!!!).
    Hope this feedback helps.
    Cheers,
    Kartik.

    Don't blame the local Distributors, blame the local Governments. The cost of doing business in Australia is quite high compared to the rest of the world. Wages are high, Rents are high, Cost of Utilities are high, Tax rates are high, etc. etc.

    Distributors and Retailers are in business to make profits. Otherwise, what's the point?

    It doesn't make business sense to stock product that is in low demand. Range of products will always be limited in Australia simply because it is such a small market compared to the rest of the world. Fortunately in this era of the Global Marketplace well informed consumers have plenty of alternative options.

    Could we get more shoes for CLAY - I know that Nike releases clay version of shoes which is fantastic.

    Although Australia doesn't have a lot of clay courts we have the horrible synthetic grass courts with the sand. I find clay shoes to be best suited for theses courts.

    Any chance that the TW team can shoot a few reviews out in Australia especially during the Austrslian Open. Could have a tennis travel feel to it and boost your marketing presence here.

    Yes - clay court shoes would be a huge plus. Also, proliferation of clay courts really depends on where you are... here in Melb (esply in the E Region) clay courts are everywhere... even the National Tennis Centre at Melbourne Park (where the AO is held) has heaps of genuine clay courts now.

    This is a great suggestion. Similarly to what you do at Indian Wells in CA.

    This thread sucks. It should be renamed "Welcome to Australia. This is the stuff you can't buy!!!"
    Yeah, great job Tennis Only. Should be renamed to "The Only Tennis Stuff You Can Buy".
