The main draws of the Wimbledon are announced
- 25 June 2012
The main draws of the gentlemen's and the ladies' singles were announced on Friday, June 22nd. Many YONEX players will play with VCORE or EZONE Xi series at the Wimbledon.
No. 25 seed Stanislas Wawrinka in the gentlemen's singles and No. 15 seed Sabine Lisicki in the ladies' singles are using the new VCORE Tour 97.
The world's best players know that spinning means winning and VCORE Tour racquets were born to spin. Stanislas gave us his comments. "I was looking for more spin, more power and YONEX really delivered with the amazing VCORE Tour."
First, YONEX ISOMETRIC head shape allows you to enjoy the larger sweet spot of a 95-square-inch racquet while playing with a more nimble 89-square-inch VCORE Tour 89. The VCORE Tour provides a 7% (as tested by YONEX) larger sweet spot at the top of the frame. YONEX increased the number of main and cross strings that meet to produce a more effective hitting area allowing you to make more match-winning shots.
Next, MICRO CORE technology increases post bounce ball speed by 20% (as tested by YONEX). So the VCORE Tour racquet provides a heavier and more aggressive bounce.
Then, No. 25 seed Zheng Jie and Ayumi Morita, who will play her opening match today, are using the EZONE Xi series.
Zheng commented "I have tried this racquet and I feel it's really nice. I have a good control and I can make more powerful shots. So I like this one."
Ayumi also said "I feel more power on every shot, even from the unbalanced posture by its larger sweet spot. The speed of the flat shot and the power of the spin-ball, which troubles the opponent, are the performances what I have been searching."
