Deciding what racquet to choose can be a pivotal point in a player’s overall game. A lot of factors come into play when choosing a racquet such as grip, weight and sweet spots. This week, we rank our favorite brands which will hopefully help you choose the right racquet for your style of play.
In 2013, this reputable brand released the Biomimetic M series. This series has received praise by both men and women players and is used by some great up and comers like Nicolas Almagro and Heather Watson. A great choice for strong players who love precision.
We love the new Prince Rebel 98 racquet. It’s great for players of any skill level and can really boost your game from the baseline. It also offers heavy spin for those trying to improve that aspect of their game. Used by pros like David Ferrer and Daniela Hantuchova, Prince is definitely a worthy option.
This brand has taken the industry by storm in recent years, winning favor by great players like Novak Djokovic and Maria Sharapova. We recommend the YOUTEK Graphene Speed Pro, Djokovic’s racquet of choice, because it offers amazing control for intermediate and advanced players. You’ll be able to maintain power and accuracy from anywhere on the court.
Narrowly missing the top spot is the racquet of choice of Rafael Nadal. Babolat has been an industry leader for years, but you will be paying a pretty penny to get your hands on one of these. However, the cost may be worth it because it offers superior balance and power from nearly anywhere on the racquet. We recommend the AeroPro Drive GT because it won’t break the bank and you’ll still get all perks of this amazing brand.
The trusted brand of pros like Roger Feder and both Williams sisters, you really can’t go wrong in choosing this racquet. Respected in the industry for years for perfect grip and weight, its and ideal choice for players of all skills and is highly customizable to your individual style of play. Almost all players have experience with a Wilson brand racquet and it is no surprise that they continuously set the industry standard. We really like the BLX Pro Staff 95 for its great feel and touch from anywhere on the court.
