Luxilon will once again have a huge presence the next 13 days at the Sony Open in Miami.
Luxilon is the number one string on the pro tour and distributed exclusively worldwide by Wilson Racquet Sports, is the official stringer again of this year’s event March 18-31 in Miami.
What string the players on the ATP and WTA Tours speaks volume about the playability of a particular brand of strings. Luxilon strings are currently used by 73 percent of the top 100 ATP players and 59 percent of the top 100 WTA players. When asked, the players says it's because of power, spin potential, and overall playing performance.
Players in Miami will feel comfortable with Luxilon stringers again doing all the work.
“We are proud to be part of the Sony Open, and Miami is a great venue to showcase our world-class strings and stringing team,” said Ryan Polito, Luxilon global product manager. “We will string 2,000 racquets, the majority with Luxilon string, to meet and exceed the demands of the world's best players.”
Who plays Luxilon strings you ask?
How about WTA no. 1 Serena Williams. She has played with Luxilon 4G since its launch last year, helping her to achieve her historic wins during 2012 and get back to no. 1 on 2013. Luxilon 4G is also used by Nicolas Almagro, Grigor Dimitrov, Alexandr Dolgopolov and Kei Nishikori. This durable string provides maximum tension maintenance for long-lasting playability, while not sacrificing when it comes to playability.
One of the most popular strings on tour is the ALU Power 125, as it features Luxilon’s proprietary poly-ether-ether blend for a superior combination of power and spin. Victoria Azarenka reached no. 1 and won a couple slams using this string. And some guy named Roger Federer used the ALU Power Rough to win all of his 17 Grand Slam titles.
Also of note, the M2 Multi-Mono string is a versatile string with dynamic, variable flex that reacts to the power of a player’s shot. This adds more control on hard shots and more comfort and feel on soft shots. This is the string ATP no. 14 Milos Raonic plays. Raonic is a Wilson player who has shown promise again this year most recently winning his third consecutive SAP Open in San Jose, Calif., becoming the first player in more than a half century to win this tournament three straight times.
Remember when you are watching many of the top male and female pros playing at the Sony Open this year, there is a good chance they are playing Luxilon.
