D. The claim the Proline tennis racket helped the last five US Open Men's single champions achieve their status is far-fetched. There is no valid information that would allow to make such an inference.

I concur (D) should be the answer. (Because "The last five US Open Men's Single Champion have all changed to Proline's new tennis rackets", this statement states they changed at some point of time, either the time when they were playing or after they became champion, so we cannot infer that these champions achieved their status using the said rackets).

Just playing devil's advocate here

why not C?

couldn't we argue that may be that Former US Open champions may be didn't know a great deal about Tennis, because the rackets were so exceptional they could win the championship with out knowing a great deal about the game???

I had selected C as well.
C and D are both not claimed in the passage.
But I guess D is a stronger claim (based on mba's explanation)
and "Former US Open champions know a great deal about Tennis" might be an assumption in the passage?
