VCORE Players Become Semifinalists in Casablanca and Houston

15 April 2013

YONEX players have fought on the clay court last week. Stanislas Wawrinka (VCORE Tour 97) entered Grand Prix Hassan II in Casablanca, Morocco and Juan Monaco (VCORE Xi 98) competed at US Men’s Clay Court Championship in Houston. Both have finished as semifinalists.

This year Stan has impressed us to have a close match against the world top player Novak Djokovic at Australian Open in 5 hours 2 minutes. He is pleased that his VCORE Tour racquet supports his aggressive play to win, “It gives me the confidence to hit the ball aggressively, with more power and more spin on both my backhand and forehand shots. This racquet is the perfect partner for my game.”

It was Juan’s first semifinal in 2013, and he has played for regaining his form at the tournament he won last year.

This week in Monte-Carlo, they challenge the Masters tournament to achieve the best result.

The Lithuanian hope Ricardas Berankis (EZONE Xi 98, PTGP125) also played in Houston, and he progressed to the quarterfinals after defeating No. 2 seed veteran Tommy Haas in straight sets by 6-3 6-3.
