The Australian Open has named Yonex as its official stringer partner for the third consecutive year.
This year’s Australian Open Yonex Stringing Team is an international squad of 25 individuals from 16 different countries who are trusted to support top athletes’ needs on one of tennis’s biggest stages.
Yonex is expected to perform over 5,000 restrings from the qualifiers through to the tournament’s final round using the Yonex PT8Deluxe, a state-of-the-art electronic stringing machine manufactured in Japan.
A Yonex statement said of the deal: “Yonex is extremely honored to be chosen as the Official Stringer once again, and strives to continue its record-breaking performance and high-quality stringing service for the world’s top players.
“Be sure to follow the team’s journey and efforts down under in January, and stop by the Yonex Stringing Room located next to Rod Laver Arena in Garden Square, as well as the Yonex String Performance Challenge, an interactive stringing challenge for fans located in front of Hi-Sense Arena in the Tokyo area of the Grand Slam Oval.”
