Sports equipment maker Wilson is targeting annual sales growth of up to 15 percent in China, where tennis is a rapidly growing sport thanks to the success of star players such as Li Na.

People are turning increasingly professional on tennis gear here, creating more demand for services such as racquet stringing. On average, Chinese would restring their rackets 1.5 times per year, compared with the average of four times in mature markets, according to Patrick Wong, Wilson's commercial manager in China.

"We expect the rapid growth here to continue in the next five to 10 years," he said in an interview in Shanghai Monday.
