Denis Shapovalov, Caroline Garcia, and Steve Johnson have been using the VCORE SV Line of racquets from Yonex this season. Yonex is refreshing the SV lineup around US Open Time, and these 3 players will debut the new frames during the summer hard court season. To avoid confusion, Yonex has simplified the name of the new line to VCORE. Their players’ racquet lines are now VCORE, VCORE Pro (Wawrinka and Tiafoe), and EZONE (Kyrgios). Shapovalov will use the new VCORE 95, Johnson will use the 98, and Garcia the 100. There will be lighter versions of the 98 and 100, and a Game model (9.5 oz unstrung).
Yonex has stepped up their market share in racquet sports, but they are showing signs their commitment to quality tennis strings is just as strong. A quick in-depth look at Yonex’ polyester, and multi-filament strings, and which one might be a fit for you own game.
At Tennis Express, we were honored to host a stringing seminar led by a member of the world-renowned Yonex Stringing Team: Mark Gonzalez. If you aspire to become a tournament stringer, or you want to know what it’s like, then you’re in the right place.
