Preview of Australian Open 2013

Date
10 January 2013

Australian Open 2013 begins next week and YONEX players are ready for the main event. We believe that they will show amazing performances to win the trophy.

The former world No.1 player Caroline Wozniacki (VCORE Xi 100) is expected to capture her first Grand Slam title. At the end of the last season, she has regained her form to win Korea Open and Kremlin Cup, and achieved to come back to the top 10. And having advanced to the SF and QF at Australian Open in the last two years, Caroline has proved she has the capability to aim for the title. To break her record, we believe she will show us her powerful play.

In the last season, Angelique Kerber (VCORE Xi 100) has made further steps to join the top 8 player and play in WTA Championships-Istanbul. The German hope has impressed us to reach the SF of Wimbledon and the QF of Roland Garros, and her ranking moved up to 5 from 32 last year. We believe her breakthrough in 2012 will bring more success to her this year. Please don’t miss her play in Melbourne!
