I don't know if this has been posted before.
But Dokic uses a Yonex racquet and wears a Yonex outfit right now.
Does anyone know what racquet that is?
The same as Elena Dementieva maybe?

There are several threads dedicated to this.

And yes, Jelena has a comprehensive contract with Yonex. The same as Nalbandian.

Yonex are pushing Jelena and David as their 2 big stars.

Yonex obviously weren't shy to show off their latest star.

She was already appearing on the Yonex advertising pictures in the Aussie Open with Hewitt and Nalbandian, she probably will always be a more marketable name than Dementieva.

even on her left one all the time as well? I know she has a double handed backhand but most players just tape their racket hand wrist. I still think it is a lot of tape for so early on in the season

Am I the only one who always thinks that "Yonex" should be name of a tampon or something? I mean, what would it mean in Sanskrit? ;)
