YONEX Unleash the Power of Sweet with the new EZONE

  • Location: Manhattan, NYC

It’s one of the most satisfying feelings in tennis: making a pure connection with the ball and rocketing a winner past your opponent. That’s the notion behind YONEX’s latest EZONE racket, and we were eager to find out just how they were going to “Unleash the Power of Sweet” as we travelled to Manhattan for an exclusive launch event.

Decked out top to bottom in YONEX-branded memorabilia, the converted studio was a lesson in how to do city chic: chandelier lighting, retro sofas and EZONE cushions aplenty. Let’s be clear though, this is a racket that’s worth celebrating in such fashion. The latest revision of the EZONE marks a real step forward for YONEX, as they take their ISOMETRIC technology to the next level and create the largest sweetspot of any racket in the history of the series. The frame also now features Hyper Modulus Graphite embedded into its upper portion, increasing repulsion power by five percent.

I don’t think I could picture
myself using another racket.
It suits my game completely.

In short, the new EZONE is going to be absolutely devastating in the right hands.

On that note, many of YONEX’s pro players were in attendance to celebrate the launch of the new racket, with Australian star Nick Kyrgios and doubles specialist Pierre-Hugues Herbert explaining in detail what they love about the EZONE range, and how much difference the enlarged sweetspot makes to their game.

We also chatted with YONEX ambassador Ana Ivanovic, upcoming young guns Annika Beck and Naomi Osaka, and last year’s US Open champion Angelique Kerber. Find out what they had to say about the Power of Sweet in our highlights video above.
