Paris, FRANCE — A trailblazer in the tennis world, Elena Rybakina (KAZ), the first player representing Kazakhstan to win a Grand Slam, signs to a full apparel and shoes deal with Yonex, in extension to her long-time racquet partnership.
The Top 10 WTA-ranked athlete will compete at the 2023 Roland-Garros, donning a head-to-toe look with the brand-new 2023 Paris collection by Yonex.
Starting tennis at the age of five, the tennis icon held a successful career from her days in Juniors Singles play, reaching a career-high Juniors ranking of World No. 3.
At the age of 23, Rybakina continues her ascent in her professional career at World No.4, having already slated over 5 championships, including the prestigious 2022 Wimbledon championship title.
In this season alone, Rybakina has triumphed with two WTA 1000 titles, further enhancing her already impressive winning pedigree. She also currently holds the record for most aces ever hit in a WTA 1000 tournament, hitting 69 at the 2023 Miami Open with her VCORE 100 racquet.
“We’ve been together from the beginning,” Rybakina says. “I have very good memories, and really happy to continue working with Yonex.” Yonex is committed to supporting Rybakina and all athletes in achieving their highest potential.
