Five Point Friday
Here’s your roundup of the five most interesting things I’m enjoying or thinking about this week.
1.) Pro Staff RF97 v13 [Full Review]
Wilson unveiled the Pro Staff v13 series of tennis racquets on Monday, which I’ve had a chance to hit with over the past two weeks. In my latest video, I review the RF97 and share my thoughts. I’ll have a full review of the Pro Staff 97 in the next few weeks – stay tuned.
2.) Do You Know Multifilaments?
Although polys heavily dominate the world of professional tennis, multifilaments and their unique comfort-oriented qualities remain popular. In my latest guide, I explore the topic of multifilaments, including their advantages, disadvantage, and my picks for the ten best.

3.) At Home With Miomir Kecmanovic
World #39, Miomir Kecmanovic, from Belgrade, Serbia, takes us back to his home to share his story, including a trip to the lake house his father built, some time at home family, and a few thoughts from former coaches.
4.) Roland Garros Wildcards
Andy Murray, Tsvetana Pironkova, and Eugenie Bouchard, with world rankings of #110, #156, and #167 respectively, have been awarded wild cards at French Open. Although Murray’s participation was expected, Prionkova is riding her success of a quarter-final visit at the US Open, and Bouchard a trip to the finals at the Istanbul Open.
5.) Italian Open Underway
Officially kicking off on Monday, Nadal stole headlines this week with his 6-1, 6-1 first-round win defeating Pablo Carreño Busta, who lost in the semi-finals of the US Open. Pablo’s likely still doing a bit of recouping and had little time to prep on clay ahead of the match, but significant in marks Nadal’s first win after seven months off.
