The Difference between Pro and Retail Rackets

It is important to note that the actual rackets used by ATP and WTA players can vary greatly from the tennis racket you buy in your local tennis shop.

This is because the Pros customize their rackets by adding more weight or by adjusting the balance of the racket.

The Pros will also often use an older generation of the same racket rather than the latest generation e.g. Nadal uses the gen 1 version of the Babolat Pure Aero.

The result of these differences is that a Pros racket will often play very differently from the version you can buy in shops or online.

In my own opinion, this is not a bad thing.

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 in at 360g+ strung.

It is important to get the racket that suits your game rather than trying to emulate your tennis heroes.
