Luxilon part of history

Strings feature heavily during Wimbledon fortnight, including in rackets of women’s singles and men’s doubles winners

Luxilon strings featured heavily throughout the recent Wimbledon tennis championships, including in the rackets of women’s singles winner Petra Kvitova and men’s doubles winners the Bryan Brothers.

Kvitova, playing with a Wilson Tour BLX racket, defeated Maria Sharipova to lift the women’s singles title, her first appearance in a Grand Slam final and first Grand Slam title, using Luxilon ALU Power 125 strings.

The Bryan Brothers, Mike and Bob, powered their way to a second Wimbledon title and an 11th Grand Slam title by beating Robert Lindstedt of Sweden and Horia Tecau of Romania. This was their 73rd career title, which is the most in men’s doubles history, and ties the record number of major doubles titles as held by Todd Woodbridge and Mark Woodforde. They used Luxilon Timo 110 strings in their rackets.

One half of the winning women’s doubles team, Katarina Srebotnik,  also used Luxilon ALU Power strings, while 12 of the last 16 in the men’s singles used Luxilon strings.

Luxilon president Nico Van Malderen said: “Our dedication to innovation and technology is what helps these athletes perform to the highest level. We are proud to be a part of the success on tour and to create historical moments such as these.”
