Ana switches to new Yonex racket

Ana will switch to a new version of her Yonex EZONE racket next season. The 24-year-old has thoroughly tested the new Xi model and is thrilled to begin using it.

"This is the best racket I've played with," said Ana. "I'm really excited to use it in competition next season.

"When I tried it for the first time I felt I had more spin and more speed with it. There are more strings so the sweet spot is bigger.

"It gives much better acceleration, and on impact there's less vibration so you can work the ball more."

Ana will debut her new racket at the Brisbane International in January.
