This week, the RS Black Edition tennis ball, developed by former world no 4 Robin Söderling, makes its debut as an ATP World Tour-ball.
"The feedback from the players in If Stockholm Open has been overwhelming and exactly what we hoped for and thought ourselves about the ball. It gives me a great feeling and belief for the future of my premium tennis brand RS" says the founder of the company, Robin Soderling.
"Me and my team have been working very hard to reach this milestone for RS, and I am sure that after the feedback from many players in the tournament, the RS ball will be used in many more events. Zverev was very happy with the ball as we could here in an interview, Jarkko gave a huge credit and both Grigor Dimitrov and Nico Almagro have talked about the ball in some fantastic nice words. Since I have been on the tour myself for so many years, I know what it takes to get the real pro players to credit a ball in this way. But we will continue our hard work and continue to develop high end tennis products that I can fully can stand behind myself".
