Wins for VCORE Players: Angelique and Juan Advance in Day 4 of Roland Garros

Date
29 May 2014

May 28th 2014, the fourth day of this year’s Roland Garros sees two VCORE -swinging players advancing. In women’s singles, Angelique Kerber (VCORE Xi 100) went up against Varvara Lepchenko. The two have faced off against each other in the past, with Kerber taking a win over Varvara recently. Once again, Kerber won against her opponent with confidence this time around, cruising through a relatively painless first set, where she snagged two break points. The second set proved more difficult, coming pretty close, but Kerber took the match with a straight-set victory and final score of 6-2 7-5. She will face Slovakia’s Daniela Hantuchova next. The Argentine duo of Juan Monaco (VCORE Xi 98) and Maximo Gonzalez grabbed a nice victory over the French duo of Florent Serra and Maxime Teixeira, the match ending at 6-4 6-4. The dynamic Argentine duo will go on to face Eric Butorac and Raven Klaasen next.

VCORE racquets are proving successful for both Angelique and Juan, advancing with them through the ranks of the tournament. With the VCORE series, spin is the name of the game. Granting precise control, players can confidentially hit wide, deep, or high, with a formidable level of spin. Embedded with the high urethane-infused MICRO CORE material in the racquet head, players have more stability when going in to shoot. The VCORE Tour G boasts a shaft embedded with a Neo CS Carbon Nanotube, allowing players even further control on the court. With this control comes great offensive power, making anyone with this racquet in hand a force to be reckoned with on the court.
