I’ve got a question on my Instagram about what racquet Daria Kasatkina is using as it’s not something you often see on the ATP or WTA Tour.
Daria Kasatkina is a Russian top 20 player on the WTA tour. She is 20 years old and recently reached the final in the Dubai WTA tournament where is lost to Ukrainian Elina Svitolina.
Kasatkina endorses a Tecnifibre T-Rebound 275 Dual Shape racquet that’s mostly marketed towards junior women.
These are the specs of the Tecnifibre T-Rebound 275.
Weight unstrung 275g +/- 7g (9.7 oz)
Head size 645 cm² (100 in²)
Balance 335 +/- 7mm
Length 68.5mm (27 in)
Beam 24/26/24 mm
String pattern 16 x 19
Swing weight 317 (strung)
I’m sure there is some lead tape on the racquet and some silicone in the handle if she actually uses this racquet because although racquets are getting lighter, 275 grams unstrung sounds a little too light to be competitive on the WTA tour.
