Lisicki likes VCORE Tour's aggressive performance

Date
29 June 2012

We interviewed with the new YONEX player, Sabine Lisicki (VCORE Tour 97) at Wimbledon. She is now playing in Wimbledon 2012 and advanced to the third round. We asked about her impression for her new racquet VCORE Tour.

"I'm very happy to play with VCORE Tour, it is very powerful racquet and it gives me a lot of spin which is needed. I'm aggressive player and I liked it from the beginning from the first hit on. I really like to hit the serve with it. And it has a good sweet spot as well, which is important because you never hit every single ball in the middle of the racquet."

Sabine also talked about ISOMETRIC, "YONEX is known as a square head shape and I was playing with it when I was a junior and I still remember that I liked it from the beginning. Because of the head shape, it has a bigger sweet spot as well, itfs just the perfect for me. Thatfs why I switched."

According to Sabine, the VCORE Tour is ideal for someone who is looking for power and wants to be aggressive and likes to serve well. And she described the racquet as "Extension of my arm" because of its comfortable feeling.

We will upload the video of this interview with Sabine soon.
