Yonex updates Denis Shapovalov's racquet of choice, the VCORE 95, to make it more spin friendly as well as enhancing the racquets feel.
The most compact head size in the VCORE lineup, the VCORE 95 is designed for precision and is targeted at big hitters. However, coming in at 10.9 ounces unstrung, the VCORE 95 is lighter and more maneuverable then most other racquets with such a compact head size. The weight and 10 point head light balance (unstrung) means that this is a fast swinging racquet. Yonex has also added a few technologies that make this racquet more aerodynamic and even faster swinging. The addition of more Aero Fins, now at the lower portion of the head as well as the upper portion, means less resistance as the racquet passes through the air. The new Aero Trench technology recesses the grommets along the top of the frame to even further reducing drag. All of these aerodynamic enhancing technologies allow for easy acceleration through the hitting zone and makes for a racquet that is extremely spin friendly.
Also new to this racquet is Yonex's Namd technology. Interring the extremely flexible Namd material into strategic areas of the racquet's layup allows the graphite carbon to create more snapback; producing more powerful shots, better feel as well as more spin potential. Though this racquet has a similar flex rating (65 RA) to it's predecessor the VCORE SV 95 it does feel noticeably softer and more forgiving thanks to the Namid technology. Another new technology that enhances this racquet's feel is Liner Tech. By dramatically reducing the angle at which the string enters the grommets on select main strings acts to extend these strings and produces a larger more forgiving sweetspot as well as more ball pocketing at impact.
The VCORE SV would be a great choice for big hitters looking for a compact head-size racquet that is maneuverable, packs plenty of spin potential and is surprisingly forgiving.

Created by YONEX in 1980, the ISOMETRIC head shape is a unique and evolutionary breakthrough technology in racquet design. In conventional racquets, the sweet spot is located where main strings and cross strings meet. The YONEX ISOMETRIC head shape allows us to increase the number of main and cross strings that meet in the centre of the racquet to produce a sweet spot which gives a 7% more effective hitting area for you to make match winning shots.
3D Vector Shaft:
The throat grooves of the 3D Vector Shaft improve racquet stiffness, generating supreme face stability and giving players more efficient power.
New Aero Fin:
The VCORE SV boasts a 16% decrease in air resistance and a 2.9% increase in swing speed thanks to its New Aero Fin Technology. The new technology features fins along the inner-area of the frame top and on the outer area of the frame at the 2 and 10 O’clock positions. This makes the VCORE SV exceptionally aerodynamic, especially on areas of the racquet which typically have the most air resistance. The end result is improved spin, higher trajectory and faster ball speed. 2018 VCORE racquets also have Aero Fin at the lower portion of the head.
A flexible carbon material that works in a graphite matrix to produce optimal frame snapback at impact. Producing better feel, more power and greater spin potential.
Recessed grommets to reduce wind drag and create greater racquet head speed.
By dramatically reducing the string entry angles in select grommets, the outer main strings are elongated to produce a wider sweet spot, providing greater snapback. With added string movement, players can grab the ball to apply extra spin.
Dimensional Weight: 1.0 kg
Dimensional weight, also known as volumetric weight, is an estimated weight that is calculated from the length, width, height and actual weight of a package. It also takes into consideration oversize/fuel surcharges. It is not representative of the actual weight of a package. We use this estimated weight as the basis to our shipping rate calculations.
