The King of Natural Gut - Wilson or Babolat?

The King of Natural Gut (Wilson or Babolat?)

Wilson Natural Gut - 17g (Roger Federer strings)

The two most popular brands of tennis natural gut are Wilson and Babolat. This used to be a fairly equal comparison about 5 years ago.

Babolat VS Team 17g: More Weather Durable

In recent years, Babolat has annouced that they started adding a new flavor of gut manufacturing (called Bt7). This provides an additional coating to help with thermal and humidity issues.
"Thermogut coating, the new BT7 treatment claims to increase longevity by up to 15%, increase durability by 25%, and improve the resistance to humidity by nearly 60%"

However, a few tennis forum posts have complained that this coating changes the feel and quality of the gut.

Wilson Natural Gut 17g: Better Feel

Therefore in play testing both, we found that the prices are relatively equal - the Wilson Natural Gut 17g gives you a better feel of the ball.

3 reasons why you should NOT pre-order your US Open Tickets this year...yet

May 22, 2015 is the start of the USTA Members Only Pre-Sale @ 9AM EST.

However, if you want to save some of your hard-earned money, read on* We want to help our fans get their US Open tickets for the dates they want, at the best price possible. It's pays to be patient this year - here's why!

3 Reason why you should NOT buy tickets at the USTA Members "Pre-sale":

  1. Full Retail Pricing - the relatively same quality of tickets will generally be sold cheaper in a few months
  2. Low Demand Seats Offered - the Tickets which are buy one get one Aug 25-28 are generally in low demand (have not sold out and have historically been B1G1 with our promos come June/July).
  3. Super competitive to get decent seats - (Men's Semi Final Sat and Finals Sun) are almost ALWAYS "unavailable" (booo!), even within the few minutes of their pre-sale starting!

    Why waste your time trying to sit at your PC at 9AM clicking refresh for nothing??

Miami Open - Tickets for March Masters 1000 Tennis

Miami Masters Tennis in Miami, FL
(March 23 - April 5)
See our Media Pictures Here

Ticket Deals for the Miami Open are still available here!
Look forward to great tennis at the end of the month if you're on the East Coast!

This is a men's and women's combined event with almost all the top 50 players there. In the past, this was known as the Sony Ericsson Open. Think of it as a mini-grand slam over 2 weeks (late March into early April). See all the best tennis players up close in both the practice courts and matches.

Miami Open Tickets

Updated Tips for 1st time viewers:
Bring a MasterCard with your to use the "early access" side lane. It gets you in the gates earlier at 9:30AM before the big crowds.

Between 2PM to 5PM is usually very hot and humid in Miami. Recommend going into the souvenir shops for some shade and A/C. Also the TV viewing area near the avenue leading to the Grandstand has some nice shade under the trees.

Daily Doubles are a good deal if you plan to see both the Day and Evening sessions of a particular date. But if you are there early in the morning, usually the DAY session is all you need to buy to watch 80% of the matches the first week and weekend.

Best matches are probably going to be for the 4th round and Semi's on 3/31 and 4/1.

If it's your first time or are bringing kids, you may want to try the Kids Day Event (Tues, March 24) which is super cheap ($10-$15) and has qualifiers playing during the day. Plus you can often catch the pros practice on the outside courts during that time.

USTA Members receive a 20% discount on 400-Level tickets using promo code USTA15 for Thursday, March 26th day and evening sessions.

Travel Tips:
If you're in the Florida area or thinking of a winter get-away, this is a great location to go.

We recommend flying into Fort Lauderdale (FLL) instead of Miami airport as it is only about 30 mins drive away and much less busy.

Traffic in Miami is very bad this week, as it's the 100th anniversary of Miami Beach and several music festivals going on at once! The General Admissions lot is $15 from near the Seaquarium, with a shuttle bus that takes you another mile to the site. The closer lot is $30, that does not require a shuttle.

Hotels can be very pricey near the beach, and especially on the weekends, so you can try Hyatt with the Offer Code SALESA to enjoy 20% off stays of 2 nights or more and enjoy 25% off stays of 3 nights or more at the participating Hyatt hotels and resorts.
