Dan Evans Tennis Racquet

by Jonas Eriksson

Dan Evans has been described by the Telegraph as “the most egregious* wasted talent in British tennis” (egregious = outstandingly bad).  After being known mostly for racquet bashing and complaining and being a hot head who’s throwing away matches, he’s suddenly come into his own and played some really solid tennis. The 26-year-old is currently ranked #67 in the world and he’s playing Facundo Bagnis in the first round of the Australian Open.

Recently Evans might have played the match of his career when he beat World Number #8, Dominic Thiem, in three sets in the ATP 250 in Sydney so he seems to be in good shape for the first slam of the year.

Evans endorses a Wilson Pro Staff 97 but what is actually under the paint job is a (now discontinued) Wilson Six One 95 in 18×20 string pattern. My guess he is using a hybrid setup with Wilson natural gut and luxilon big banger – possibly the excellent string set called “Champions Choice“.

There is a lot of users of the Wilson Six One 95 series on tour, so many that it probably deserves its own article. Del Potro, Kohlschreiber, and many, many more. It’s simply a great racquet if you can handle the weight (around 330 grams unstrung). I’ve used it myself in pretty much every iteration since the Wilson nCode Six-One 95 and it’s always been a favourite.

Hi Adam,
Thanks! Dan has a good taste in racquets, the nCode is my favorite Six One 95. Similar combo to Kyle Edmund for the strings!

Cheers / J
