Wilson Fastest Smash EventNew for this year is the Wilson Fastest Smash Event. The speed measuring device for this event has been built specifically by the brains in the MIT Media Lab, which is the same lab that built the slam-dunk force measuring gadget used at the NBA All Star Slam Dunk Contest. There will be no Blake Griffin jumping over cars, but you will see some of game's big hitters showing off their smashing power. This Wilson sponsored event is open to all and prizes will be provided by Wilson. Come try it out and see if you can smash as fast as a professional can! The finals of this event will take place before the semi-finals on Saturday at 5pm. More information is available at www.bostonopen.com/fastest-smash
