During an extraordinary week at Wimbledon, Sabine Lisicki (VCORE Tour 97, PTGSPN) defeated World No. 1 Serena Williams and advances to the semi-finals. Meanwhile VCORE Tour player, Borna Coric (VCORE Tour 97, PTGSPN), continues his 2013 Wimbledon run after a straight-set win against Filippo Baldi in the third round match of the Boy’s Singles competition.
It was Coric’s ability to capitalize on break chances that allowed him to beat Baldi.
Securing four of five break points, he completed the match with a 6-4, 7-5 score line in just an hour and sixteen minutes. Coric tells us he feels that his racquet and string offer him an extra advantage in competition. “I really like my VCORE Tour racquet, it gives me so much more confidence and power in my shots. Also, I’m playing with the YONEX string PolyTour SPIN, which gives me control. I think they make a perfect combination,” he said.
Featuring a unique emphasis on ISOMETRIC head shape, the YONEX VCORE Tour—racquet of choice for both Lisicki and Coric— is designed to increase the number of string intersections, amplifying the sweet spot by 7% (tested by YONEX). Pleased with the technology, Lisicki explains, “I can keep an offensive approach in a match because I can always make contact with the ball at a sweet area so that I hit strongly. This racquet fits my aggressive style very well.”

In pursuit of her first final Grand Slam title, Lisicki faces the World No. 4 Agnieszka Radwanska on the center court today.
