Marion Bartoli switch in Prince frames helped her upset No. 1 Victoria Azarneka and move into the semis of the Sony Ericsson Open. The Frenchwoman ended Azarenka's 26-match winning streak on Wednesday.
" I have been actually switching racquets just before this tournament, playing with the same brand but just a different racquet," she said. "
“I really feel like this racquet is helping me with the power into my game. I think switching was a great thing for me. I feel like my ball is going faster, and I don't have to put so much energy into my shots to get more power. So I think also to switch racquet was a real bonus for me, and it helped me throughout this tournament."
