I was lucky enough to witness Kyle Edmund take a set from Rafael Nadal in Monte Carlo and was amazed by the power of his forehand. What racquet does the young Brit use to produce such controlled power?
Kyle Edmund is playing with the legendary Wilson Six One 95 racquet in 18×20 string pattern painted as Wilson Pro Staff 97. The Six One series is more than 20 years old and has been Wilson’s flagship line since it came out, but has since then been discontinued. However, Wilson is bringing the racquet back in Europe and hopefully soon US too, because there are simply too many fans of this great racquet series.
I don’t know what strings Edmund uses, but would guess based on the pics that he is using Luxilon Alu Power (please feel free to correct me here).
Edmund is currently ranked 42 in the world at 22 years of age. Does he have the potential to become Britain’s next tennis star after Andy Murray? Top ten? Please comment!
