Sabine then talked about her plans for the rest of the season, “Because I won in Hong Kong, I can participate in the WTA Tournament of Champions, so that's very special. I want to win and finish the season there. I’m also appearing in the Fed Cup.” After visiting with fans and an autograph session, the hard-hitting Sabine continued on to test out the new Sony Smart Tennis Sensor. True true to her reputation, she hit the fastest stroke of the day.
That same day also saw superb wins for YONEX players in the second round, with both Angelique Kerber (VCORE Si 100)—the No. 1 seed—and Ana Ivanovic (EZONE Ai 98) grasping fine victories. Angelique defeated rising star Elina Svitolina in straight sets, 6-4 6-4. "I think I like the courts here, because I always play well" said Angelique on her performance in a comment on the WTA website. In a match between former No. 1 players, Ana came out victorious over her opponent, Victoria Azarenka. Intent on winning the prize, Ana grabbed the lead shortly into both of her sets, taking the match in 99 minutes at 6-3 6-4.
The next round is the quarterfinals, so be sure to watch for what YONEX players will do next!
