Keeping Up With The Playtesters…

It is playtest season here at Tennis Warehouse! Which means we are furiously playtesting new racquets daily! Which brings about this week’s question for my fellow playtesters,

“If you can’t use your ‘go-to’ racquet of choice, what racquet will you use?”

US Open 2013 Gear Check: Ana Ivanovic

Ana Ivanovic is wearing one of my favorite looks this week at the US Open in her adidas Adizero line of clothes — I’m loving the bright color combos in this collection! She takes the court in the next round against American, Christina McHale (who also is wearing pieces from the adizero Fall collection). So, let’s take a quick look at what Ana is styling on the courts of Flushing Meadows.

Her apparel: The colors in this collection absolutely pop out there on the court and I love the reddish-orange combo with the dark blue. Ana is wearing the Fall Adizero Dress in the Hi-Res Red (orange) with Hero Ink color. This bold, lightweight adidas dress features a scoop neck, racerback straps, mesh inserts at the chest and upper back for increased ventilation. Also, this dress comes with a matching sports bra and compression short so you don’t have to worry about finding coordinating pieces! On her feet, she is wearing the adizero CC Tempaia IIs in a colorway that matches her dress perfectly. These lightweight, fast shoes offer extreme breathability and have been designed with maximum ventilation, which for sure help keep Ana’s feet cool on the hot NYC days. She shields the sun from her face, with her matching adizero II visor.

Her gear: Ana’s racquet of choice is the Yonex E-Zone Xi 98 which provides a stable, yet flexible, soft feel offering excellent power and a flexible, forgiving feel. From the baseline, this racquet feels very maneuverable allowing easy access to fast swings for power and spin generation. Shy hybrids her string with Solinco Tour Bite 16 with Wilson Natural Gut 16. She carries her gear on court with her Yonex Pro Bag.

Play with heart,

Michelle

Product Review: Yonex Tournament Basic Bags

Welcome tennis lovers, in recent product videos I took a quick look at the Yonex Tournament Basic Series Bags. The thing I really like about these bags is the clean design, because they aren’t too too flashy, but completely functional and spacious. (Make sure to click on the pictures for links to the videos.)

The Tour Basic 6 Pack bag has two main compartments, an accessories pocket, shoe bag.. Everything you need in one simple design.

The Tour Basic Back Pack bag holds up to two racquets and has a really clean style. It’s quite spacious for a compact back pack.

A lot of bag lines don’t include a travel bag, and I really liked how simple and spacious this Tour Basic Tour Bag was. Easy to carry too, with big middle grab handles and a shoulder strap.
