Alexander Zverev is one of the most promising players to take over after the big three. But what is Alexander Zverev’s racquet?
Alexander Zverev was ranked as high as number three in the world in 2018 but had a rough 2019 with “only” one tournament title (Geneva) and many tough losses. He has said that his issues stemmed from a legal dispute with his former agent Patricio Apey, so hopefully, he can put that behind him now in 2020. He hasn’t started the year brilliantly so far with three losses at the ATP Cup, but the year is still young.
Zverev has been endorsing the HEAD Speed line until 2019. But HEAD claims to have made the HEAD Gravity Pro (read my review here) for him. That is why he is now using or endorsing the Gravity Pro. Like with most things pro stock and pro player racquets, we cannot be a hundred percent sure, but it does look like he has made the switch from his HEAD Youtek Speed MP pro stock to a HEAD Gravity Pro pro stock.
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, customized to his specs. It has silicone in the handle, lead tape in the hoop (at 12 o’clock) and his racquets are all matched so they have the same swing weight, static weight, and balance.

Alexander Zverev’s Racquet Video
I made a short video about Zverev’s racquet along with his current tennis-playing woes. It is not meant to be a “roast” of some kind and I hope he can get his head straightened out and start performing well again.
