You have to look very closely to see it, but many top tennis pros at the US Open have started playing with band vibration dampeners on their racquets. This is a new trend. Italian tennis player Roberta Vinci who upset Serena Williams, the popular Victoria Azarenka and mixed doubles finalists Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Sam Querrey (pictured below) all play with band dampeners on their racquets. They join long time banders Maria Sharapova, Kevin Anderson and Bernard Tomik. Clay Thompson new ATP Tour Pro and former #1 ranked college player from UCLA says: “I much prefer the band type of dampener to the standard round smiley face look. The bands never fly off, provide a better feel and look much cooler. The colorful OTZ bands are without a doubt the best on the market.” Own the Zone has been selling OTZ band dampeners in 9 different colors since 2006. Join the OTZ Band.
