Re: Wozniacki with Yonex ?!

I heard during the YEC that she was going to trial new rackets. Maybe she finally found the one that worked for her.

Re: Wozniacki with Yonex ?! photos


In the above picture you can clearly see it's a Yonex square headed racket Caro was playing with.
It even has Yonex's standard green butt cap with the white yy logo as you can see below:

... And by butt cap I wasn't talking about this:

Re: Wozniacki with Yonex ?! photos

Caro is still playing with the same Babolat strings in her new Yonex racket. This is easy to tell because she plays with two different types and colors of stings in each direction. Red main strings and white cross strings, and there aren't that many red strings available. Yonex doesn't make any red strings and they don't make natrual gut strings either, as Caro prefers to use as the cross strings.

White natural gut Babolat VS as cross strings: http://www2.babolat.com/#/tennis/en/products/244


She was also testing out another weapon:

Caro still plays with the usual clear/white cross strings as you can tell from the below pic.
Probably still Babolat VS natrual gut strings, as Yonex doesn't make any natrual gut strings. But it could also be the Yonex TourSuper 850 nylon string, which Yonex claims has the feel of natural gut and is also has almost the same color.
But she has switched the red synthetic Babolat Revenge main strings to some yellow synthetic main strings, most likely the yellow Yonex PolyTour Pro 125 polyester string, the only yellow string from her new sponsor Yonex.

Re: Wozniacki with Yonex ?! photos

The Poly Tour Pro is their best string aka Kirilenko and now quite a few Yonex players. Yonex does have a gut string available only to their advisory staff, but they don't make it. Not sure if Wozniacki has a string contract with Yonex since nothing has officially been announced. I was shocked when I heard Kirilenko did since Yonex has never been known for great strings. Last year, people thought her bright yellow string was Wilson. Yonex strings her rackets. Not sure what Wozniacki will do.

Re: Wozniacki with Yonex ?! photos

Interestingly she has now swithced main strings from yellow (probably Yonex PolyTour Pro 125) strings back to red string since losing to Cibulkova at Medibank International Sydney.
Pictures below from her training session with Verdasco at AO in Melbourne today, using red main strings again.
She is probably using same strings as last year now, her usual red synthetic Babolat Revenge main strings: http://www2.babolat.com/#/tennis/en/products/474

WTA World No. 1 Player Caroline Wozniacki signs with YONEX





[Topix] …2011/01/17
YONEX is pleased to announce a multi-year sponsorship agreement with WTA Tour World No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki (DEN).

Caroline, who is 20 years old, achieved great results at Junior International level before turning pro in 2005.

She is expected to become a leader of the next generation of female tennis stars ending 2010 as the WTA No. 1 ranked player and was named ITF World Champion.

From the beginning Caroline has been very impressed with attitude and application of the YONEX development team to create the racquet that she requested to fit with her winning style of play. The new “VCORE 100S" more than meets those demands. After only 5 minutes of testing the racquet for the first time Caroline was eager to start 2011 with the YONEX racquet as her new weapon on court.

We announced the outline of the contract yesterday with her in Melbourne, Australia. Caroline commented on her eagerness to succeed at the Australian Open with VCORE 100S "After the Doha, which was my last tournament of last year, I had trained back at the practice court and the whole YONEX team were there. I thought that everything about the racquet was perfect at the end and I thought that it was great for me.YONEX really helped me to find solutions for improve my game and also spin with the ball."

We are very proud that the world's top player selected our products. We will support her with all our strength, designing and manufacturing “Made in Japan" tennis racquets to help Caroline dominate world tennis now and in the future.
