Is Ana's new Yonex racquet effecting her game in a negative way?

Her forehand isn't that good, from what I've seen in Hong Kong?
Maybe she has to geet used to it.

If it has improved her backhand then it's a non issue.

If it was, it would only be because she needs to adapt???

Doubt it, she spent a long time choosing the right one for her. And then she has been training with it the whole off season.

I think in Hong Kong it was just Ana being inconsistant as she can be

I agree-she probably just needs to get used to it

she may have picked the wrong specs but 2/3 matches isnt enough to make a judgement

Re: Is Ana's new Yonex racquet effecting her game in a negative way?

EXO matches mean nothing... Szavay, Dementieva and Peng which all beat her in off-season lose badly theys first official matches in this season and we will see what Ana will do tonight vs stronger opponent (Razzano) than Fedak, Olaru or Arvidson...

I dont say that new racquet is minor change, but i only not take her unofficial activity and results seriously. Her h2h record with Yonex is still 0-0.

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

i dunno enough about racquets, but it's been often known that it's often a paintjob (look at momo's switch from dunlop)

i think their game is so much modelled after the racquets they are most comfortable with, so there is no way they will take endorsement money over a title or their career!

on the other hand, ana's not known to be ms. consistency either

It's not just paint. Yonex racquets have a unique shape in comparison to other brands, it's clearly a different racquet.

As for the topic, no, her racquet can not now or in the future be used as an excuse.

The racquet looks nice at least

I'm sure she'll get used to it soon enough.
