After playing with a blacked-out racket for much of last season, Caroline Wozniacki has signed a new deal with Babolat. Wozniacki was playing with a Yonex racquet for about two years until she went into slump and then stopped playing with her frame in the late spring. She then began playing with a blacked-out racket, which many presumed was a Babolat, as she had played with one prior to signing with Yonex in 2011.
“I'm looking for a little more power, but also a little more control at the same time, such as I might get a little more spin on the ball, she told Ekstra Bladet.
Wozniacki would not reveal which Babolat frame she will play with, but she will play in the Brisbane International which begins next week.
The former No. 1 and current No. 10 is also working with new coach Thomas Hogstedt, who coached Maria Sharapova up until the summer.
