Ana looks to revive game, performs equipment switch-a-roo in Tokyo

Change seems to be the word surrounding Ana Ivanovic these days and it continues this week in Tokyo.

Apparently, the French Open champ is looking to tweak her once explosive game and has switched to the Yonex RQiS 1Tour XL, a model not yet on sale publicly and only used by Ana in the professional ranks. She revealed the reason for the switch in her diary saying,

Talking of rackets, I have a new one! Yonex have made a slightly lighter racket for me, which helps because I can get a little more head speed. It’s a new design too, which I really like.
And no girl would be caught dead with an old style bag to lug around her shiny new stick so the Serb will be toting around an new, exclusive racquet purse:

Ballers are usually very sensitive to even minute changes in racquets, stringing, balls, etc. so it'll be interesting to see if her results change either way.

We'll all be watching Ana.

  1. Yeah, that's pretty odd she would switch from the racquet she used to get to number 1 in the world and win her first Slam. Plus, I would assume she hasn't gotten a chance to practice with it much with the thumb injury and all. She'll be back to her old frame before she knows it, I bet (or painting the old one to look like the new one).

  2. At least she's doing something different, for better or worse.

  3. nothing wrong with trying something new.
