Ruud is currently endorsing the Yonex Ezone 100 but he actually plays with a customized version of the Yonex DR 100 Plus.

Ruud is one of a few pro players on tour who plays with a racket that has an extended length, which allows him to get more power when pushed out wide on his forehand and backhand.
