Smooth sailing for Caroline Wozniacki and her new tennis racquet.
Last week Yonex announced that Caroline Wozniacki, the world's number one ranked female tennis player, had switched to a Yonex racquet. It's hard to imagine turning in your racquet at the very top of your game. Remember Novak Djokovic's bumpy brand switch a couple of years back? Money can be compelling however as we all know.
The switch was officially announced at the start of the Australian Open although Wozniacki has been playing with the new stick since January 1. No problems whatsoever. The new racquet in hand is the new for 2011 Yonex VCORE 100S.
"After Doha, which was my last tournament of last year, I had trained back at the practice court and the whole Yonex team was there. I thought that everything about the racquet was perfect at the end, and I thought that it was great for me. Yonex really helped me to find solutions to improve my game and also spin with the ball."
We all know about player racquet customization but the VCore 100S has a 100 sq. in. head size 16×19 string pattern and is designed for players who really like to spin the ball. The #D vector shaft is said to aid frame stability.
