Tennis Rackets used by the Pros

If you have ever wondered what tennis rackets are used by the pros, then you have come to the right place, as I have compiled a list of rackets endorsed and used by some of the top players on the ATP and WTA tours including Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Iga Swiatek, and Emma Raducanu.

What Tennis Rackets Do The Pros Use?

The Difference between Retail and Pro Tennis Rackets

It is important to note that the rackets that are used by ATP and WTA players can vary greatly from the racket you buy from an online tennis shop.

This is because the pros customize their rackets by adding more weight or by adjusting the balance of their racket so that they can hit the ball with more power and control.

The pros will also often use an older generation of the same tennis racket rather than the latest generation e.g. Nadal uses the Babolat AeroPro Drive Original rather than the latest Pure Aero Rafa.

The result of these differences is that a professional tennis racket will often play very differently from the retail version you can buy online or at your local pro shop.

In my own opinion, this is not a bad thing as the customized versions the pros use in the majority of cases are completely unsuitable for even advanced recreational players with some Pro players playing with rackets that weigh over 360g strung, which is far too heavy for recreational players to play with.

In my opinion, it is better to get a tennis racket that suits your game rather than trying to emulate your tennis heroes.

What Tennis Rackets do the Pros use?

The below list details the rackets used by some of the top players on the ATP and WTA tours including Carlos Alcaraz, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Emma Raducanu, Coco Gauff, and Iga Swiatek.

As well as showing the rackets they endorse, I have also included (where possible) the actual racket they play with as many racket manufacturers paint pro tennis rackets like those used by Nick Kyrgios and Andy Murray to look like the latest version that is available in shops.

Do tennis players pay for their rackets?

Most professional tennis players are sponsored by one of the big racket manufacturers (Head, Wilson, Babolat, etc.), so they don’t have to pay for their rackets.

What is the most used tennis racket on tour?

The Pro Stock version of the Wilson Blade 98 is probably the most used tennis racket on tour with Stefanos Tsitsipas, Pablo Carreno Busta, Alex de Minaur, David Goffin, Mackenzie McDonald, Milos Raonic, Aryna Sabalenka, Elina Svitolina, and Paula Badosa all using it.

Which pros use Babolat pure drive?

The Babolat pure drive is used by Lucas Pouille, Garbiñe Muguruza, Karolína Plískova, and Fabio Fognini.
