Yonex brings precision stringing to the Australian Open

Yonex  is excited to serve as the Official Stringer of the Australian Open for the seventh consecutive year. Last year, the Yonex Stringing Team also strung for the “Melbourne Summer Series” and will continue to support the leading events in 2022. The global team works tirelessly and meticulously to prepare all players’ racquets for each match. Last year, the  Yonex Stringing Team  has strung more than 5,747 restrings and on its busiest day, performed 537 restrings. This level of speed and accuracy is built on the team’s extensive experience, which includes stringing at the Beijing, London, Rio, and Tokyo Olympics, as well as the Tokyo Paralympics, along with a great number of other events around the world. 
Each technician on the team is devoted to providing top-level stringing to support the world’s best, working from the early hours of the morning to late at night. Often media does not place a lot of focus, but tournament stringers are some of the unsung heroes behind the Australian Open. Be sure to visit the Yonex Stringing Team at the Stringers’ Hut to see their craft and pride in being part of the 'Happy Slam.
