Jack Draper’s racquet

by Jonas Eriksson

Jack Draper is a rising star from the United Kingdom. But what is Jack Draper’s racquet? It’s painted like a Dunlop FX 500.

At the time of writing, Draper is ready for the final at the Boss Open 2024. He has played solid tennis all tournament and got a final set tie-break win against Frances Tiafoe in the quarters before he defeated Brandon Nakashima in straight sets in the semi-finals.

Draper is currently ranked 40 in the world and has won five Challenger titles, but is yet to win a tournament on the ATP level. This is a great opportunity, despite a tough opponent in Musetti or Berrettini waiting in the final.

Draper’s racquet

Jack Draper’s racquet looks like a Dunlop FX 500, but as for many pros, there is something else underneath the cosmetic. I got the chance to take a closer look at his racquets at the Boss Open. According to the Tennis Warehouse forums, it is a Dunlop Revo CV 3.0 F. He has it customized with lead tape in the throat and under the grommets to 320 grams unstrung and strings it with Luxilon Alu Power 1.25. I am unfamiliar with his swing weight or other specifications. If you know, please comment below.

The main difference between the Revo racquet and the newer FX 500, is that the string pattern is more open on the latter. Pros tend to like a denser string pattern to achieve more control, especially when they are using a powerful “tweener-style” racquet.

Do you think Jack Draper can be a top-ten player in the future? Let us know in the comments.

Definitely think he can be a top ten player. His serve and return of serve are amazing this year.
