The main draws of the Wimbledon are announced

Date
25 June 2012

The main draws of the gentlemen's and the ladies' singles were announced on Friday, June 22nd. Many YONEX players will play with VCORE or EZONE Xi series at the Wimbledon.

No. 25 seed Stanislas Wawrinka in the gentlemen's singles and No. 15 seed Sabine Lisicki in the ladies' singles are using the new VCORE Tour 97.

The world's best players know that spinning means winning and VCORE Tour racquets were born to spin. Stanislas gave us his comments. "I was looking for more spin, more power and YONEX really delivered with the amazing VCORE Tour."

First, YONEX ISOMETRIC head shape allows you to enjoy the larger sweet spot of a 95-square-inch racquet while playing with a more nimble 89-square-inch VCORE Tour 89. The VCORE Tour provides a 7% (as tested by YONEX) larger sweet spot at the top of the frame. YONEX increased the number of main and cross strings that meet to produce a more effective hitting area allowing you to make more match-winning shots.

Next, MICRO CORE technology increases post bounce ball speed by 20% (as tested by YONEX). So the VCORE Tour racquet provides a heavier and more aggressive bounce.

Then, No. 25 seed Zheng Jie and Ayumi Morita, who will play her opening match today, are using the EZONE Xi series.

Zheng commented "I have tried this racquet and I feel it's really nice. I have a good control and I can make more powerful shots. So I like this one."

Ayumi also said "I feel more power on every shot, even from the unbalanced posture by its larger sweet spot. The speed of the flat shot and the power of the spin-ball, which troubles the opponent, are the performances what I have been searching."
