There was actually no surprise in the Non-Poly department: Babolat VS Team is still dominating in all categories except durability and won the title "Non-Poly of the Year" for the third time in a row. Also when looking at the best performing non-poly, non-gut string, Tecnifibre X-One Biphase defeated its position by becoming second only to natural gut in 6 categories and winning the durability category.
In the Poly department, we see the return of a legend: Luxilon Big Banger Alu Power won the title "Poly of the Year", defeating newcomer Tecnifibre Black Code which was clearly voted "Newcomer of the Year". While Alu Power also won the "Control" and "Durability" categories, Black Code topped the "Comfort" and "Spin" departments. Signum Pro Poly Plasma 1.23 is still the number one tension holding poly while its thinner gauge 1.18 won the "Feel" category.
Other top newcomers of 2009 like Signum Pro Tornado and Luxilon Big Banger Alu Power Spin have not yet established a leading position in the corresponding categories, but let's watch them closely in 2010!
Final result (most popular strings in 2009):
