PV sindhu racket and shoe model

Pusarla Venkata Sindhu is a huge name in India. Despite being a very good player, she was always in Saina Nehwal’s shadows in her early career. That all changed when she won the Silver medal at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. In doing so, she became the first ever Indian woman to win an Olympic Silver medal. Standing at 179 cms, PV Sindhu is one of the tallest players in international women’s singles. She centres her play style on her steep smashes and her amazing reach.

2015 – 2018
She used the Voltric Z Force 2 during this period. This powerful racket suited the attacking style of gameplay PV Sindhu brings to the court.

The Yonex Voltric Z Force 2 might yet be the most iconic racket which has ever been released by Yonex. It was released before the 2014 All England. This racket is primarily meant for singles players as it has a head heavy frame.

The racket will be suited for players who have an attacking style of play. It performs well with overhead attacking shots but it lacks a little bit for defensive shots. You will need to have a very good wrist technique to hit your shots well using this racket.
