Sabine Lisicki Signs with YONEX
- 28 May 2012
YONEX is pleased to announce a new sponsorship agreement with WTA World #13 player Sabine Lisicki. Sabine recently switched her racquet to YONEX’S VCORE Tour 97 for her participation in the Strasbourg Open and Roland Garros.
Sabine turned pro in 2006, and has so far won three titles. After she recovered from an injury in 2011, she reached the Wimbledon semifinals, with her ranking climbing to #15, and was named "Comeback Player of the Year" for that year.
Sabine is using YONEX’s new VCORE Tour which has a larger sweet spot thanks to YONEX’s unique ISOMETRIC head shape, giving players a distinct advantage and delivering physics-defying spin with every stroke.
"I liked this new racquet with the first impression. It was very comfortable to hit and wanted to play at the tournament as soon as possible. Especially when I attack hard, I feel the ball goes more powerful and generates more spin than before. I was looking for more power because sometimes I feel I need it more during the strokes between the opponents but now this racquet gives me sufficient power to shift the opponent's to mine. This is why I can be more offensive on the court. I played with the YONEX frames in the past and am very comfortable and familiar with a square head [ISOMETRIC] type of racquet and the sweet spot," Sabine told us.
