Daniil Medvedev’s Tennis Racquet

Can Daniil Medvedev Win A Grand Slam?

Russian next-gen player Daniil Medvedev has just reached his first Grand Slam final and is currently a top 5 player. What is Daniil Medvedev’s tennis racquet?

Medvedev has been on a massive streak lately and won most matches of anyone on the ATP tour so far, including his first Masters title. Can be beat Rafael Nadal in the US Open final? The odds are against him, but he has shown a strong ability to defy the odds in his young career. But since this is Tennisnerd you are probably wondering about Daniil Medvedev’s tennis racquet.

Daniil Medvedev is sponsored by Tecnifibre and uses the Tfight XTC 305 according to Tecnifibre. I am not sure what kind of customization is applied to the racquet in terms of silicone in the handle and lead tape placement, but he is somewhere between 355-360 grams strung, with a balance around 32 cm. He has used Tecnifibre Razor Code strings before but now seems to have made the switch to Tecnifibre Ice Code.

Tecnifibre Tfight XTC 305 Racquet Review

The above picture is from my review of the XTC 305 and not Medvedev’s personal racquet. Tecnifibre has recently changed their logo to “TF” instead of their triangle which you can see in the picture below:

Daniil Medvedev's Tennis Racquet

Medvedev’s style of tennis is very similar to Djokovic and his racquet specs align quite well with Djokovic’s racquet. A controlled pattern in 18×19, a smallish head size (95 and 98), and a really stable weight (close to 360 grams). The scary thing about Medvedev is that he has a bigger serve than Djokovic, so he can definitely be a threat to Grand Slams in the future.

Buy the Tecnifibre Tfight XTC 305 from Amazon (see other racquet stores down below) you can also read my review here. I enjoy Tecnifibre racquets a lot myself and used to play the Tecnifibre Tfight 315 ATP limited in 16×19 string pattern.

What do you think of Daniil Medvedev’s style of tennis?

Hi Jonas,
Is it might be close to mould as Djokovic PT113b?
The stiffnes is prety much the close and string pattern is the same.

Jonas..you bring very good points to racquet science, and with such a large company like Technifibre that is known for primarily making tennis string,,this shows they can also provide good designs for top level tennis players racquets also.
My question with regards to the specs of this Technifiber racquet is this racquet an XL model,meaning is it longer than the normal 27 inches.
Since Daniil has such a powerful serve I think this maybe an XL stretch racquet frame,lots of most big servers have XL racquets.
Since the launch if my product XTP Xtended Tennis Product custom butt cap,we find most players are concerned with getting more pace on the serve by adding the XTP butt cap to their current frame making it half an inch longer.
Check it out XTP tennis butt cap for that extended racquet feel,same racquet but now half an inch longer.thx.john

You really think his is that heavy?

Med. has a long swing seems to whip that thing around pretty quickly. (Chardy plays w/ 305 unmodified according to TF.)

I play w/ 305 unmodified and love it. W/ a double overgrip it’s ~337g strug. I would love a bit more heft, but adding just ONE gram to top or bottom seemed to throw it off and loose it’s “magic”. It just seems so well balanced stock.

I own the 320 as well, which has that same perfect feel & balance but it’s much heavier and slower. I wish there was a 310/315.Not the current 315, that’s a very different racquet.

…ether that, or I need to learn how to add weight and counterbalance properly :-\

Yes, according to a stringer who has strung his racquets. I think 355 was the exact weight. The 305 is a nice racquet – I agree.

I have to thank you for this article and find your website so insightful in general.

A part of me knows I shouldn’t be looking at what the pros are using, they are PROS! But, at the same time it’s nice to know that the raquets they use are not stock raquets (at the very least) Just a few grams can change the way a racquet feels and plays completely.

This post inspired me to tinker with my 305 AGAIN by adding lead and silicone. You can remove the metal piece on the bottom, and cut a hole in the plastic below. Add your silicone and you can glue the metal back on.
I think I’ve finally hit the sweet spot by adding about 4.5g to head and 5.5g to the handle. IT FEELS AMAZING and it elevated my game. Don’t know why Tecnifibre doesn’t use caps with trap door.
Until I made these adjustments I was tempted to continue searching for my perfect racquet and the TF40’s were next on my list. But I’m happy to say, I think my search is over.
Thank you!

What is said in Japan is the new color of the Razor CODE.
Sorry if you knew.
