Andrei Rublev’s Racquet

by Tennisnerd

Andrei Rublev has started 2020 in spectacular style with two ATP titles! He is known for his impressive racquet head speed and aggressive game. But what is Andrei Rublev’s racquet?

Andrei Rublev’s racquet is currently blacked-out as he is under sponsorship with Wilson and is, by all indications, using a HEAD Gravity Pro (click to read my review). They might still be negotiating, or waiting for his contract to terminate, but the results Rublev has had with the Gravity Pro speak for themselves. It is obviously not all about the racquet, but last year he seemed uncertain about his choice as he was switching between his regular Wilson Six One 95, an H22 and an H19.

Andrei Rublev’s Racquet – Specs unknown

Sadly, I do not know the specs for Rublev’s racquet. He used to play with a Wilson Six One 95 with some lead tape at 12 bringing the weight up to 360 grams strung. He strung that racquet with Luxilon Adrenaline 1.30, but now with the Gravity he seems to have made the switch to HEAD Lynx Tour strings.

The HEAD Gravity is a very different racquet from the Wilson Six One 95. Thinner beam, larger head size, teardrop head shape and so on. To be able to swing this as fast as his old racquet, I am sure he has reduced the weight somewhat. If anyone knows more about his current specs, please comment below!

No matter what racquet Rublev uses, you cannot overlook the fact that he is an exciting player to watch with huge potential in the game.

Looks like 18×20? So, if the Gravity Pro then with the stock string pattern.

A little surprised.

Hi Jonas,

could you specify a bit, what are the indications that Rublev is using Head Gravity Pro?

P.S.: Thanks for your work, this is one of the best tennis websites.

Hi Pavel,
Thanks! Well, first of all, there are pics where blackout is so badly done that you can see the Gravity colors underneath.

Second of all, the head shape is a definite tell, as well as the bumper design. On close inspection of some pics, you see that the beam is thin (so not a Gravity Tour for example) and if you count the strings you can tell that it is 18×20. You need to do some amateur detective work, but in this case, the Gravity has a very specific look which makes it easier.

Hope this helps. Cheers / Jonas

Patrick, sorry, could you explain what you mean by “top 50” (he is currently No. 15) and how do you know he is trying Wilson Ultra Tour (if this was the case, why would he use blacked-out racket?)?

Hi Jonas,

Thank you! I studied the pics and have the same impression as you.

It’s 100% NOT Head Gravity. Just look on grommets and throat connection with head https://revistatenis.uol.com.br/media/andrey_rublev_vs_auger_alissime_adelaide.jpg

Hi Stanislav, I play with Head Gravity PRO and just now have it in my hand comparing it with the picture – I don’t see differences as regards grommets and connection with the head. What exactly do you mean?

Actually you’re right, it’s gravity pro. All gravities has a different grommets and drills. Rublev’s model is PRO.
