Which Rackets Win The Most Slams – An Update

You may remember at the end of last month I made on post which tennis rackets win the most grand slams in which I looked at how each brand of racket has performed at Grand Slam level since the start of the open era in 1968.

I know a few of you liked that post so I thought I’d update you on a couple of amends and changes I’ve made.

In the post itself I asked you guys for any corrections and any errors you spotted as I was missing a couple of rackets and wasn’t sure if all the data was correct. Enter Jean Claude Marty.

As you can see from the comment above Jean-Claude uncovered the rackets I was missing (Brian Teacher and Andres Gimeno) and he also emailed me a list of corrections on the rackets I’d got wrong. Turns out Slazenger had won 11 slams not 1 ;)

In terms of the amends the following changed:

  • Rackets I had listed as been won by Seamco and Rawlings were in fact Slazenger rackets
  • Lendl used Addidas rackets instead of Kneissl
  • Agassi won his first slam with a Donnay not a Head
  • McEnroe won his first 2 slams with Wilson before switching to Dunlop
  • Brian Teacher used a Pro Kennex
  • New brands added were WIP, Pro Kennex and Spalding

The full updated post is here: Which Tennis Rackets win the Most Grand Slams?

It also turns out that Jean Claude has a book coming out with all this information for both the men’s and women’s games which I think is pretty cool and I’ll be doing a feature on the book when its released.

If any of you guys are historians of the game then I’m sure this will be a must buy and I know from researching the racket myself this book will have taken a huge amount of effort to make. And it goes into far more detail than I did, including pictures and more information about the rackets themselves.

I also think it’d be cool if Roger himself were somehow to find out about this book as from how he talks about the game and its past I reckon he’d find it interesting. So if anyone has any ideas on that then please let me know!
