Vera Zvonareva Picks Prince’s EXO3 Black 100.

Vera Zvonareva Moves to Prince Tennis Racquets 
 Prince Tennis has announced that Vera Zvonareva is now officially on the Prince athlete roster. She has selected the new Prince EXO3 Black 100, $199 USD, as her weapon of choice.

“I trust Prince and the quality of the racquets they produce and know that the company is continually thinking about ways to take my game to a higher level.  When I first picked up the EXO3Black, I knew something was different, special about it, and the more time I spent with the racquet,  the better it felt to me.  I have already won my first title with it and am looking to make deeper runs at the bigger events this year, especially the Grand Slams.” Zvonareva joins Gael Monfils, Maria Sharapova, the Bryan Brothers and Shahar Peer, already playing with an EXO3.

There are currently fifteen different racquet models in the EXO3line of performance racquets, allowing players with different playing styles, preferences and skill levels the opportunity to take advantage of the technology.  There are eight models in the EXO3Tour Series (Zvonareva's racquet is one) designed for ultra-competitive players looking for control-oriented frames with more traditional weights and cross-sections. The seven models in the Thunder Series are designed for players looking for ultimate comfort with exceptional playability (that's speak for the rec player).

The dot on Zvonareva's strings? The mark of Gamma. She plays with Gamma Zo Sweet 17, $11.25 per package. This is a hybrid set with power monofilament for the mains and TNT2 for the crosses. Her outfit is K-Swiss.
