WE LOVE TENNIS <3
Marketa Vondrousova has made a big stir in female tennis after clinching the Wimbledon 2023 title from unlucky Ons Jabeur.
On the court, Vondrousova’s signature shot is the drop shot. In general, she has a crafty style of play and employs a wide variety of shots. Her game often includes long, strategic rallies in which she makes use of her left-handed topspin forehand
Marketa Vondrousova plays with the Yonex EZONE 100 racquet.
Vondrousova Racquet Specs
Marketa uses probably an older version of the Ezone 100 but with the newest paint job. Still, the racquet has roughly the same specs and playstyle.
The Yonex Ezone 100 is a power-oriented frame with a 100 sq in head and a 16×19 string pattern. It is forgiving and spin-friendly for any kind of player.
The racquet already comes with 300 gr of weight in stock form. However, we don’t know how Marketa customizes her racquet. Maybe she adds some lead tape or foam in the handle.
The EZONE 100 is used by many pros like Casper Ruud, to benefit from the effortless power. But it requires the skills of a professional to control the shots consistently. So lots of training and a good choice of strings can do the job.
- Yonex incorporates 2G NAMD SPEED into the graphite composition of the shaft, enhancing the response to deliver increased power and improved ball feedback.
- ISOMETRIC head shape is still used to increase the sweet spot and offer more forgiveness.
- HM Graphite with a convex cross section in the shaft provides stability and a soft response.
Here are the stock specs of the Yonex EZONE 100 racquet
|Head size||100 sq in|
|Unstrung weight||10.6oz / 300gr|
Vondrousova Racquet Strings
Marketa uses a hybrid string setup of :
- Yonex Polytour Air 1.25 in the mains
- Touch VS Natural gut 1.30 in the crosses
This setting consists of:
- a poly monofilament that is soft, arm-friendly, and provides control and high ball pocketing.
- Natural gut strings that offer a blend of comfort, power, and feel.
Can You Buy Vondrousova Gear?
Yes. The racquet and strings are available everywhere. For the racquet, you can get the latest Yonex EZONE 100 with the newest tech and fairly similar playability to the old models.
