HEAD Laver Cup Racquets 2022

We’re getting ready for Laver Cup this weekend. In time for the event, we have two new HEAD Laver Cup racquets 2022.

HEAD Laver Cup Racquets 2022

The HEAD Laver Cup racquets 2022 is the HEAD Auxetic Gravity MP in the blue Team Europe cosmetic and the HEAD Auxetic Radical MP in the red Team World cosmetic. It’s an interesting move from HEAD to release the new Auxetic editions of the Gravity and the Radical, a limited edition cosmetic before they do the actual silo release. I think it’s nice because you get more than a design update if you purchase any Laver Cup racquets.

The specifications of these racquets are unchanged, so the addition of Auxetic to improve the impact feel is the update from the previous generation of HEAD Gravity and HEAD Radical racquets. I think Auxetic has slightly improved feel and stability from the racquets I’ve play-tested so far. If you’re interested you can check out my HEAD Prestige 2021, HEAD Speed 2022 and HEAD Extreme 2022 racquets reviews by clicking the text links.

I hope to review the HEAD Laver Cup racquets, but if not those, at least the silo updates of both Gravity and Radical when they are released.

But this Laver Cup is mostly about Federer’s retirement and his last competitive matches on the ATP tour.
