Get Ready for the Aussie Open

10 January 2014

Just before the first exciting Grand Slam of 2014, YONEX had a Product Launch in Melbourne on Friday, January 10th.

YONEX introduced its new tennis racquet, the VCORE Tour G, for the first time worldwide.
World No. 8 Stanislas Wawrinka started using the VCORE Tour G at the beginning of the season, and brilliantly won the Chennai Open—a spectacular debut victory for this new model.

“The racquet can help me improve. I was happy with the new racquet from the beginning, especially since it gives me more spin,” commented Stan, who was in attendance at the event.

We also invited Ana Ivanovic and local the favorite Nick Kyrgios, who recently received made it into Australian Open’s main draw as a wild card, to the event.

These two players have been using the same racquet, the EZONE Ai 98, since last year.

Ana had this to say about her racquet: "I was so excited when I heard about the new technology. And also it has my initials there!"

At the end of the event, Lleyton Hewitt (VCORE Tour 97) also showed up, and all the guests were excited to hear about his win in Brisbane.

The Australian Open main draw has been decided, and the first round begins on Monday. Go Team YONEX !
