Ivanovic Talks about New EZONE Ai Racquet

25 September 2013

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

Following the release of the EZONE Ai, we set up a special YONEX booth for the new EZONE Series at Ariake Colosseum. At the moment, the booth is the only place where fans can see the new EZONE Ai racquets before launch. Ana, who has been using 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 gave fans her impressions of it, “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 attended the event, and Ana had a great time with 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.
