The HEAD ATP ball has again proved itself as ball of choice in this year’s Davis Cup competition. The ball was used in 7 out of 15 World Group ties contested this season in the prestigious international team competition and is being used in the 2011 final between Spain and Argentina starting today in Seville.
In the Davis Cup, each host nation is allowed to choose its preferred ball for home matches and therefore, the use of the HEAD ATP ball reflects the express desire of captains and players. Unlike in the football Champions League, the combination of ball and surface is critical and most important throughout the three-day weekend, with no second chances, no home-and-away fixtures and losing teams being eliminated immediately.
The HEAD ATP has proved to provide more spin, more control and more durability under the most extreme competitive conditions, performing to optimum levels on all surfaces. This will again be the case as host Spain bid for a fifth Davis Cup trophy since 2000 against three-time runner-up Argentina.
HEAD is especially proud to be the most-used ball during the 2011 Davis Cup World Group. As the Official Ball of the ATP World Tour, the HEAD ATP has also been played at the year-end Barclays ATP World Tour Finals in London, as well as ATP Masters 1000 events in Shanghai and Paris-Bercy.
During the Davis Cup weekend, fans of HEAD Tennis on Facebook have the chance to win a year’s supply of HEAD ATP tennis balls in HEAD’S ‘Guess & Win’ competition on http://www.facebook.com/headtennis.
