American tennis player Michael Mmoh signs with Dunlop
Mmoh will play with the SX 300 frame from Dunlop. He has already started using the SX 300 as he trains at IMG Academy ahead of the U.S.
Open. As per the Dunlop website, Mmoh says, “Tennis is about improving, every single day. I firmly believe part of that improvement can come from your equipment. You need to use a racket that not only suits your game, but improves your game.
I felt that with the SX 300. I have been testing and training with some of the best players in the world at IMG and had great results. Now I look forward to getting back out there to wield it against tournament competition”.
Masahiro Asahino, Head of Tennis Division for SRI, says, "We’ve worked very closely with Michael over the past few months, and we’re happy to report that he’s beyond satisfied with his SX 300; he feels like it will actively help his game as he climbs the rankings.
Testing rackets is a process with all players. In Michael’s case, he was interested in finding a frame that could make his most powerful shot, his forehand, more consistent. The SX 300 generates just enough spin to keep those forehands consistent.
We’re all looking forward to seeing him in action with the SX 300 later this month”.
