Brian D. Ladin currently serves as director and member of the board with Konig & Cie. Outside of work, Brian D. Ladin has enjoyed tennis for the last three decades. He plays with a Prince racket.
Prince is one of the world’s most recognizable brands when it comes to tennis rackets. Some of the more popular Prince models today include the TeXtreme Warrior 107 and the Premier 105 ESP. Several of the most successful players in professional tennis, including the Bryan brothers, make use of Prince products. Twins Bob and Mike Bryan have led the professional doubles tour for the last decade, securing an all-time record 106 doubles titles and 16 majors. Both players use the Prince EXO3 Ignite Team 95 racket.
Singles players John Isner and David Ferrer also carry the Prince brand on the pro tour. Isner, the top-ranked American for several years, used a Prince Black EXO3 100 during the longest match in tennis history. Isner battled for more than 11 hours before beating Nicolas Mahut of France in the first round of the 2010 Wimbledon Championships.
David Ferrer of Spain, meanwhile, currently uses the Prince Tour 100. Ferrer, who has been ranked as high as world number three and who reached the French Open final in 2013, has ranked inside the top 10 for more than five years.
