Federer and Williams on Top of the Rankings

October 12, 2009

Roger Federer is #1 on the ATP World Tour and continues to be nothing less than extraordinary. Earlier this year, Roger made his mark on tennis history as he used his Wilson [K]Six-One Tour racket to win Roland Garros and Wimbledon to lift his major title count to a record 15 Grand Slam titles.

“This year has been fantastic for me and I look forward to finishing the year on a successful note,” said Roger Federer, the greatest player of all time. Federer owns many records, most notably the record for most consecutive weeks at number one (237), most consecutive major finals appearances (10) and most consecutive semifinals appearances at a major (22).

Roger is scheduled to be in action in Basel, Paris and at the ATP World Tour Finals in London on November 22nd when the eight best players in the men’s game compete for the ATP World Tour title.

Serena Williams regained her world #1 WTA Tour ranking after using her [K]Blade Team racket to reach the Round of 16 at the China Open last week.

Williams now has the chance to add to her career total of 72 weeks at number one. “Obviously I’m happy to be there because I’ve worked so hard this year to get there. I think I’ve earned it,” Williams said.

It has been a great year for Serena as she took the Australian Open and Wimbledon singles titles. She has also had success on the doubles court with sister Venus as they took 3 of the 4 Grand Slam Women’s Doubles titles in 2009.

“Wilson’s tennis history is unparalleled,” says Wilson Tour Director Massimo Calvelli. “Roger and Serena are a tremendous part of the Wilson tennis heritage and we are extremely proud to have them on the Wilson team.”
