For the past 40+ years, every point at the US Open has been scored with a Wilson US Open tennis ball.
Then, are Wilson US Open tennis balls good?
The Wilson US Open Extra Duty tennis balls are a good value and by far the best for both clay and hard court. They hold their bounce for at least 4 sets and even held up well during a rainy, wet clay day. I like the Wilson HD tennis balls. They hold up well on hard courts and dont feel like rocks when hit.
People also ask, are womens tennis balls lighter?
Regular- duty balls, which are used by women, have a thinner, less fuzzy felt, making them feel lighter and giving them less resistance during flight. Extra-duty ones, preferred by men, have a thicker covering with more fuzz, allowing them to be used longer on hard courts but making them heavier and slower.
What is the longest lasting tennis ball?
Not only are the Penn Pro Marathon Extra Duty tennis balls their longest-lasting ball. They are also packed with Penn’s latest technology to enhance performance.
What do numbers on tennis balls mean?
Tennis balls have numbers printed on them so players can distinguish their balls from balls coming from another court. Most people play tennis in an area where people are playing on adjacent courts, and it is very possible that more than one court might be using the same brand and type of ball.
What is the most durable tennis ball?
Advanced players will want something with more durability and consistency since they hit the ball harder. The best options are the Wilson US Open balls, Pro Penn Marathon, and Penn Tour tennis balls. The Championship balls above will work as well, but they won’t last more than a one or two matches.
