Dunlop Launches Revolutionary
Line Of Racquets
Dunlop’s new iDapt line of tennis racquets launches at select retailers
The racquets, introduced last
week at an event in New Orleans, give players the
ability to individualize and adapt their frame based on
their playing needs. Players can customize the head
size, look, feel and length of their racquet, to create
any of 432 different options, then have a retailer
assemble it on the spot. The initial range of patented
iDapt racquets features four different head options,
each available in three different cosmetics: iDapt 98,
iDapt 100 (16x19 string pattern), iDapt 100S (14x18
string pattern) and iDapt 105.
iDapt racquets will retail for
$199.00. Players can visit
more, build their own iDapt racquet, and find an
authorized iDapt retailer.

Speaking in Cincinnati, Federer
said, "Toronto was definitely faster than four years ago
when I was there last time around, and almost feels
faster than this week. Here it's always been rather fast
because of the bounce, the heat. Even the wind clearly
makes it more difficult."
