Alexander Zverev’s Racquet

by Tennisnerd

Alexander Zverev is perhaps the most promising player of the next generation.  But what racquet does Zverev use? This post deals with Alexander Zverev’s racquet.

Alexander Zverev endorses the HEAD Graphene Touch Speed Pro – a well-reviewed and really nice feeling racquet, but like so many other pros he is actually using something else (read what other ATP professionals use in this post). Alexander Zverev’s racquet is a pro stock version (read the post: what is a pro stock racquet?) of the HEAD IG Speed MP (with the pro stock code TGT 262.4 D). If you want to learn more about pro stock codes, read this post.

Unless you want to buy a pro stock racquet, you can get a HEAD IG Speed MP pretty cheap and put a bit of lead tape on it to match his specs. But remember, what works for the pro players might not work for you.

Alexander Zverev’s Racquet – Alexander Zverev’s Racquet Specs

Alexander Zverev’s racquet is like all other pro player racquets, nothing magical but just a racquet you can (or could) buy in the store, tuned to his specs. It might have some silicone in the handle, it definitely has lead tape in the hoop and his racquets are all matched so they have the same swing weight, static weight and balance.

Here is a picture of what Zverev did to his racquet when he got trashed by Rafael Nadal in Monte Carlo 2017 (I was there to see it live). You can read my take on his game and future in the post: Will Zverev be the next world number one?

You’re wrong he uses the special racquet he designed with HEAD last year but with the new paint

I’m okay with being wrong! Where did you get the information and what is the specially designed racquet in that case? Cheers / J

Patrick May 12, 2017 - 4:20 pm

Sorry, but there’s this video that head realesed in which he is designing the racquet and the paint colors but he is now endorsing the new racquet but he is not using it. Sorry but I don’t know the specs

It looks in that photo that his racquet is foam filled, yes/no?

Tennisnerd May 16, 2017 - 7:43 am

Yes, must be. Some racquets are and some are not 🙂 Cheers / J

Jonas off topic, sorry, but seems best to post in this recent column. My Angel K7 has arrived. Could you recommend or give your view on tension settings to give to to my club stringer. I have bought some Angel Halo 1 string to try it out,
Thank you.

Hi Michael,
I think it’s worth to try a bit lower with the K7 Red. 22 kg could be really nice! Cheers / J

He’s endorsing the Speed MP. First Graphene XT, then Graphene Touch, now Graphene 360.
The speed pro is endorsed by Nole.

Tennisnerd August 3, 2018 - 3:07 pm

Yes, true!

Hi there Jonas, that is actually the picture I posted myself on Tennis Warehouse forum. I can share the link if you would like. It would be nice to get credit for it citing where you took the picture from and who posted it. Cheers

P.S: great blog, I am a fan 🙂

Sure! Do you mean the top picture? Credit added! Cheers / J
