WTA World No. 1 Player Caroline Wozniacki signs with YONEX
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 started to turn heads on the Women’s Tour and in 2008 she was awarded WTA New Comer of the Year. 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.

"VCORE lets you play aggressively because it has so much power, but you still have control to put the ball in the right spot to hit clean winners.
The spin is amazing. The ball just kicks off any surface which allows anyone to play with great confidence."
