Germany’s Alexander Zverev is one of the tennis stars in the making since winning his first title in 2016 and has often been tipped to take over the mantle from the Big Four. If you are looking to buy and use Alexander Zverev’s racquet here’s all the information about it along with its specifications and modifications if any.
Zverev, or Sascha, as he is popularly known in tennis circles, has been on the pro circuit since he was a 14-year-old, and played his first main draw match on the ATP tour in 2013.
A boys singles title at the Australian Open in 2014 followed soon before he won his first senior tour title on the Challenger circuit that very year. He had doubled that count by the next season, winning both his first two titles on clay.
The maiden title win on the ATP circuit followed at the St. Petersburg Open, which began a run of at least one ATP title in each of the seasons which followed (at the time of writing!).
Having broken into the top 100 of the rankings in 2015, Zverev ended up showcasing his real talent just two seasons later when he won five titles including two Masters titles – at Rome and Montreal.
A Madrid Masters title followed in 2018 which aided in Zverev qualifying for the ATP Finals for the second time in a row. And this time around, he won the title with wins over Marin Cilic, John Isner, Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic. It was the biggest tournament win of his career.
While Zverev’s off-court issues have been well-chronicled, they haven’t interfered too much in his aggressive baseline play, with his ability to punch forehand winners helping him win points early.
Zverev’s serving is still way off from being one of the best for his 6’6″ frame, it’s his returning that keeps him in the business. However, that also means he has developed nicely into an all-court player who has had titles everywhere (except grass till 2020).
So, Which is Alexander Zverev’s Racquet?
Alexander Zverev endorses the Head Graphene Gravity Pro tennis racquet but the racquet he uses while playing is a HEAD Gravity Pro pro stock version. Zverev’s racquet is currently strung using Head Hawk Touch and Babolat VS Touch in the mains and crosses respectively.
This isn’t too different from what many of the players do while getting into racquet deals with manufacturers. They have a customised version of the racquet that feels the best to them but a paint-job version makes it look like a more recent racquet which is then sold to the public.
