Danielle Collins’ Racquet

by Jonas Eriksson

Huge congrats to Danielle Collins for winning the Miami Masters in her last year on tour! But what is Danielle Collins’ racquet?

Danielle Collins’ racquet used to be a Babolat Pure Aero, but last year she switched to Tecnifibre. She is now using the Tecnifibre Tfight 300 (slightly extended to 27.2 inches from what I have heard) and the following unstrung specs: 310 grams, 32 cm balance and 298 swing weight. If you add strings and overgrip, you get some thing like 334 grams, 32.5 cm balance and 330 swing weight.

The retail specs of the excellent Tecnifibre Tfight 300 are listed below from Tennis Warehouse. You get 10% if you buy the racket from Tennis Warehouse Europe using the code TNERD10. Ps. This applies to almost everything on the site except heavily discounted items and Asics Ds.

Danielle Collins retirement

Despite winning her biggest title in 2024 and having a stellar year so far, Danielle will retire at the end of the season. There are health reasons behind it which she has explained in an interview:

“I’m living with a chronic inflammatory disease that affects your ability to get pregnant,” said Collins, who revealed in 2019 that she had been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. “That’s a deeply personal situation. I’ve explained that from time to time. “At the end of the day, this is my personal choice.”

So let’s enjoy Collins’ explosive game and personality while she is still on tour!

I wish the Tfight 300 was a 100 sq inch racquet. I really like the feel of it but use the Pure Aero instead as it’s a bit more forgiving when you hit off-centre. Also easier to serve with the Pure Aero.

Regarding your comment John, you could always try the TFight 295 (also 100 head, and if the weight was really an issue that is easily fixed)
