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

May 28, 2014 marked the fourth day at Roland Garros where two VCORE-swinging players advanced to the next round. 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 recently taking a win over Varvara. Once again, Kerber defeated her opponent with confidence, cruising through a relatively painless first set, where she snagged two break points. The second set proved more difficult 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. Argentina’s duo of Juan Monaco (VCORE Xi 98) and Maximo Gonzalez grabbed a nice victory over France’s Florent Serra and Maxime Teixeira, with 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 to be 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 more 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.
