PROTO EX-110 TOUR EDITIONTennis Racquet / 1994
This model was developed for Argentine professional Gabriela Sabatini—the world’s third-ranked player at her peak—after she endorsed Yamaha in 1991. While the previous EX-110 model was designed for power players, this model features increased touch and control to adapt to changes in Sabatini’s playing style. The 20-mm thick beam is stiff at the throat and tip, and flexible in the middle so that the flex point is in the center of the hitting surface, delivering a balance between responsive rebound and dwell feeling. The intuitive feel of contact and outstanding response are perfect for power players with high swing speeds. The striking colors announce the competitor’s presence on the court.
