Ivanovic Talks about New EZONE Ai Racquet

25 September 2013

Attacking with the new EZONE Ai racquet, Ana Ivanovic (EZONE Ai 98)  won another overwhelming victory against Ukraine’s Elina Svitolina in the second round of Toray Pan Pacific Open on Tuesday, September 24th.

Following the release of EZONE Ai, we set up a YONEX booth with a focus on the new EZONE Series at the Ariake Colosseum. Now you can see EZONE Ai racquets only at the booth before launching. Ana, who switched her racquet to the EZONE Ai 98 since this tournament, visited the booth to interact with Japanese tennis fans and attend a talk event. She really likes her new racquet and spoke about impression for it there, “I tried the new EZONE Ai racquet for the first time after the US Open. I had a good feeling about its larger sweet spot and greater control so that I switched my racquet right away. Also I liked its design at the first impression.” More than 100 people joined the event, and Ana had a great time to spend with a lot of her fans.

Aiming for the singles quarterfinals, Ana will meet another YONEX player, No. 5 seed Angelique Kerber (VCORE Xi 100), in the third round on Wednesday.
