nike: good, if overpriced apparels.  some good shoes (i wear Air Resolves, beautiful)
dunlop: cheap rackets and good balls
adidas: good clothing and shoes
yonex: some people like their rackets, but their shape freaks me out
babolat: good strings, I hate their rackets in general

Dunlop and Slazenger rackets are about $30 to 40 less than Wilsons and other brands in Canada.  The Slazenger X1 is $144 Canadian.  I would get two if i didnt like the n6-1 so much.

I'm offended that Head isnt on there. We held this same type of discussion on the old board and Head tied for 3rd behind Wilson & Dunlop.

I started using Head before I ever knew who the Williams were. If I decided to switch to a Wilson racquet, I would SO get Venus' though. I saw a kid using it ONE TIME EVER at a tournament and almost peed myself in excitement.

I wouldn't use the oversized version n4... I dont even think she really uses the oversized version bc that thing is a rocket launcher for sure. I would get the midplus if I used the racquet at all. And jackal...DUH, I wouldnt switch racquets now. Just saying if I could ideally use any racquet, that'd be it.

Yonex, for sure :-)
The best racquets, vibration dampeners - and the best tight-fitting shorts ;-)

I hope you're saying that in reference to Anna Kournikova and not yourself because if its the latter, I'll proceed to go throw up all over myself.
