Date
22 October 2018

Yonex surpasses Wilson and Head, becoming the leading racquet provider for the BNP Paribas WTA Finals Singapore. Nine out of the total twenty-four athletes will draw their Yonex racquets to compete for a chance at the title.

With all the world’s greatest Women’s Singles and Doubles Tennis athletes converging on the Malay Peninsula October 21st - 28th Naomi Osaka and Angelique Kerber lead the charge from #TeamYonex and play their first match tonight. Osaka, who will play in her first final, described her feelings about the tournament.

“Qualifying for the WTA Finals is a huge accomplishment,” she described to WTA. “Winning the WTA Rising Stars Invitational in 2015 helped give me the confidence to play on the big stages so I am excited to go back to Singapore and compete with the top players of the season.”

 Kerber takes on Kiki Bertens (NED) and Osaka will get a rematch two years in the making against Sloane Stephens (USA) later tonight.
