TENNIS.com Review
By TENNIS.com on December 07, 2009

One of the first racquets to be released under the new Boris Becker label is the venerable V1. Even with the new name and logo (the “Serveman,” which is modeled after Becker’s trademark knee bend on his serve) the racquet has many of the same qualities players have come to expect of its predecessor, most notably, a solid, forgiving response. It’s what made the original V1 so popular with players who suffer from arm pain. The racquet has vibration-dampening materials, called Sensor Plus, in the shaft and handle to lessen shock on impact. It works so effectively that one reviewer likened the comfort of playing with the mid-plus to “an old pair of shoes.” The V1 is a medium-weight racquet, and the head-light balance helps keep it maneuverable from all parts of the court. The extra length on the oversize gives the racquet a bit more pep—and some of the stray shots that go along with it. If you put a premium on control, try the mid-plus.
