Caroline Wozniacki (DEN)

Racquet: VCORE 100S

2010 Winner;
Rogers Cup
Toray Pan Pacific Open
China Open

"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."

If the racket needs to be tweaked to her liking Yonex will do it. Don't believe Babolat was going to commit that much time and resources into keeping Caroline. It's understandable people like to go where they are liked or appreciated.

It's just a tough time to make a switch but then again her contract was up now and not last year or next year.

I would gather five years; same as Ivanovic with Yonex and most other contracts. They didn't announce anything.

Re: Wozniacki with Yonex ?! photos

Thanks for info. I'll double check with Yonex tomorrow. Any details on money ? I believe Ivanovic, according to a business journalist, became the highest paid female in regards to a racket contract. Wondering if Wozniacki got the same.

Re: Wozniacki with Yonex ?! photos

Only thing I have read was: upwards of 5Million DKr p/a which is in the region of US$900,000 p/a

I can't imagine they actually know though? Sporten.dk is the sports section for a large Danish broadsheet called 'Berlingske Tidende'

Article here in Danish

Re: Wozniacki with Yonex ?! photos

Q. You're playing with a new racquet. What are you stringing it with?

CAROLINE WOZNIACKI: Uhm, I am stringing it right now with the strings that I played with before.

Q. Which was what? Some kind of composite?

CAROLINE WOZNIACKI: It's the red string. It's called Revenge and natural gut. But, yeah.

Re: Wozniacki with Yonex ?! photos

Strange that she tells the press that she's still using the red Babolat Revenge main strings and cross gut strings when Yonex pay her to use and promote not just their rackets but also their strings.
I had already figured out this was the case when she switched from yellow Yonex strings to red Babolat strings, but it's still strange that she says admits using Babolat strings on a press conference when she's paiud by Yonex to use thier stings.

The original announcement was racket and poly string which was taken from their facebook website. Obviously, she wasn't comfortable with the string so she went back to Babolat string probably with permission from Yonex.

Strings isn't considered a big part of Yonex, and only recently has the the Poly Tour Pro been used by several pros. Kirilenko began using a Yonex string last year for the first time at the Australian Open.

I gather they are developing a string similar to the revenge which she will try later if in fact it is part of her contract. Perhaps it's no longer part of the deal if she didn't like it.

She does need to be more forceful with her shots when the situations presents itself so we will see if the racket will provide her with more power. It's obvious Yonex is putting time and effort into Caro as opposed to Babolat who consider Kim, Rafa and Andy as the face of their company.
