On court, the improvement in ventilation is pronounced. The shoes do a better job of protecting your feet with a fabric that breaths more naturally than the older, double-layer mesh. The mid-sole combines with the outsole to provide a cushioned ride while still feeling close to the court surface. The tread has changed slightly from the previous version as it flexes and supports well during dynamic movements like sliding or sprinting for drop shots.The full-length polyurethane mid-sole has some good bounce and energy return with a more plush feel than in the 2.0. After a couple of sets in the heat, the shoes showed a remarkable improvement over the 2.0 because they hadn’t absorbed a lot of sweat. Later the same afternoon, the shoes were dried out and ready for the next session on court.
Denis Shapovalov, Caroline Garcia, and Steve Johnson have been using the VCORE SV Line of racquets from Yonex this season. Yonex is refreshing the SV lineup around US Open Time, and these 3 players will debut the new frames during the summer hard court season. To avoid confusion, Yonex has simplified the name of the new line to VCORE. Their players’ racquet lines are now VCORE, VCORE Pro (Wawrinka and Tiafoe), and EZONE (Kyrgios). Shapovalov will use the new VCORE 95, Johnson will use the 98, and Garcia the 100. There will be lighter versions of the 98 and 100, and a Game model (9.5 oz unstrung).
