Spectacular Performances from YONEX Players in Davis Cup
- 17 September 2013
Four YONEX players competed at the Davis Cup World Group Play-offs last week. They took big steps to return to the World Group.
Go Soeda (VCORE Xi 98, PTGSPN) played two singles matches against Colombia as a member of the Japan team. After Go overcame Alejandro Falla with a comeback victory, Japan’s performance earned them a ticket for competing in the World Group next season. As the official wear sponsor, YONEX continues supporting the Japan team for further progress in the Davis Cup.
