Vera Zvonareva Credits Switch to Prince EXO3 in Climb to #2 in World.
Vera Zvonareva has taken the world #2 spot in the WTA rankings and is crediting her new tennis racquet as a key element in her success. Since picking up the Prince EXO3 Black racquet earlier this year, Zvonareva has jumped twelve spots on the WTA Tour with two Grand Slam finals (Wimbledon and US Open) and a trip to the WTA finals in Doha.
"This year has been very special for me. I feel I have played some of my best tennis in 2010 and a big part of the reason for this was my switching to the Prince EXO3 Black …at the beginning of the year" said Zvonareva. I am more confident on every ball because this racquet gives me more power without sacrificing control – even on balls I might not hit perfectly in the center when I am on the run or stretched out…”
According to Prince, EXO3 racquets completely liberate the string from tight grommet holes – facilitating more string freedom and response – even at the edges of the frame. This provides a larger, more functional hitting area, at any head size, giving players edge-to-edge playability.
Most recently, Zvonareva finished a perfect 3-0 in Round Robin play after her 6-4, 7-5 victory against Kim Clijsters at the WTA Tour Championships in Doha, Qatar. This is a career high for Zvonareva.
