Mats Wilander’s mythic racquet: the Rossignol F200

Mats Wilander is best remembered for his tenacity and his fair play, but also for his racquet, the mythic Rossignol F200.

Rossignol F200 racquet

The F200 Carbon was one of the early graphite models that replaced wooden and aluminium racquets in the early 80s.

During the 70s tennis boom and the transition from wood to graphite, some ski companies jumped into the tennis business: they had some expertise in the composites area that they put in their tennis racquets. HEAD was the first in 1969. Voekl, Rossignol, Kneissl and Fisher followed.
Mats experimentally played with a Prince CTS racquet at Wimbledon in 1989, and with another Rossignol model until the end of his career.
