    I was wondering if there are japanese players that are not sponsored and don't use Yonex. Anyone have a clue? It seems like japanese players are really loyal to their country by only using Yonex. :) I assume there are none because the Japanese national team is sponsored by Yonex. Same question for Victor and Korean players.

    Many players use Mizuno shoes. Wilson has contracted some players to "break into" Asia, most notably Sho Sasaki.

    Cheers,

    Misaki Matsutomo and Shintaro Ikeda also play with Wilson racquets.

    The latest Kumpoo Power Shot F3700T was developed for Japanese player Fujikura

    Reiko Shiota and Shintaro Ikeda wear Adidas shoes.
