The ATP Tour version 2017 has kicked off in Doha, Brisbane and Chennai. First action I’ve seen is David Ferrer swinging his Babolat Pure Drive Plus
Roger Federer played his first match of the year at Hopman Cup where he beat Daniel Evans comfortably 6-3 6-4. Federer went all baby blue in his Nike attire
Another interesting match on the agenda today is the Dimitrov vs Johnson affair in Brisbane. Dimitrov played very confidently and never looked to be in danger in a 6-2 6-3 win. For racquet nerds it will be extra interesting to watch Steve Johnson this year, as he has switched to a Yonex SV 98
Another player that has been snapped out by the increasingly more active (in the sponsorship market), Yonex, is young gun Francis Tiafoe who used to wield a Wilson Blade 98
Yonex really became strong again much due to their sponsoring of Stan Wawrinka, but is now making new inroads into the tour thanks to solid products (the Yonex AI 98
World number one, Andy Murray, was also in action today, playing doubles with Marius Furstenberg in Doha. He did looked rusty, but that could have been the doubles format troubling him.
Where do you catch all this tennis action? I watch it mainly on TennisTV and Eurosport Player, two great streaming services.
