Tecnifibre recently celebrated its 40th anniversary with a glamorous party in Paris and some of the most popular ATP stars were on hand for the festivities.

Daniil Medvedev and Jeremy Chardy joined French DJ Bob Sinclar to help celebrate Tecnifibre’s milestone moment. Sinclar is an avid tennis fan and was happy to rub shoulders with some of the greatest players in the game.

“Tennis is my job and music is my hobby,” said Sinclar. “I live tennis [and] always watch highlights. I love Roger Federer, Jeremy and all of the Frenchies. When you’re on YouTube, they keep suggesting more and more matches, so I watch all of it!”

But while Sinclar was modest about his tennis abilities, Chardy and Medvedev also played down their musical prowess.

“I love music and thought I’ll learn guitar to attract girls, [but] I’m really bad at it! I don’t hear sounds,” joked Chardy. Medvedev admitted to being vocally challenged and said that “if I decide to sing a song, all the people around will beg me to stop.”

Chardy and Medvedev are both competing this week at the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters.

You know Jeremy Chardy’s booming forehand. Now imagine the Frenchman’s forehand with a new, more powerful racquet from Tecnifibre.

Chardy has changed racquets within the Tecnifibre family and now uses the company’s new T-Fight 305, one of seven models of Tecnifibre’s new T-Fight XTC range, the flagship of the Tecnifibre/ATP co-branded products. The racquets are elegantly designed in the colours of the French flag, and Tecnifibre engineers have improved the racquets’ technical aspects as well.

The racquet first of all is a really good looking racquet… I also think it’s a good mix between power and control. That’s why when I changed for Tecnifibre three years years ago, I was really happy because I could still have the power but with a lot of control in my ball,” Chardy told ATPWorldTour.com.

Chardy has enjoyed having more power with his new racquet. “It’s good because you can be more relaxed and if you touch the ball well in the centre of the racquet you get much more power,” he said.

Tecnifibre thought of various types of players when designing the racquets. The seven models in the line are broken into three groups: lightweight performance models, for younger competitive players or older club players; power models, for high-performance players who crave a traditional but powerful frame; and control models, for top-level players who prefer a traditional yet compact frame for stability and control.

The light racquet segment might feature the most changes. The racquets have an extended handle, making the two-handed backhand even easier. The segment of racquets has a hybrid elliptical/rectangular design that generates more stability and has greater power potential.

The new string pattern – 16×19 – will lead to increased power and ball feel. And the segment has XTC Construction above the grip that provides increased stability and ball feel as well.

Fans might not be able to play as well as Chardy, No. 44 in the ATP Rankings. But they can own the exact same racquet as the 31-year-old right-hander. Shop now at TennisWarehouse.com.
