Jan-Lennard Struff’s Racquet

Jan-Lennard Struff's Racquet - HEAD Graphene 360 Extreme Pro

Jan-Lennard Struff is a German player with a big serve and some powerful weapons from the back of the court. Still, he has not really had any massive results yet. One of his biggest wins so far came in Indian Wells last week when he beat Alexander Zverev. But what is Jan-Lennard Struff’s racquet?

Jan-Lennard Struff is ranked in the top 50 and a solid performer on the ATP Tour. He has also had some success in doubles with a couple of titles to his name. His biggest win prior to defeating Zverev came against Stan Wawrinka in 2016 so he definitely has the game to worry top opponents. He has been using a Babolat Pure Drive for most of his career, but in Indian Wells, he took the court with something that looks like the HEAD Graphene 360 Extreme Pro (or MP). But what is really Jan-Lennard Struff’s racquet?

Jan Lennard Struff’s Racquet – Is it really the HEAD Graphene 360 Extreme Pro/MP?

Well, this is the big question as usual. What Jan-Lennard Struff’s racquet is painted as and what it really is could be two entirely different things. For you who are new to this, this is what is called a pro stock racquet and a paint job. if you carefully study the frame, you might be able to pick up on a few things: the string pattern is different from the commercial model, the beam width, the head shape, etc. In the case of Jan Lennard Struff’s racquet, it is hard to say what it really is just from looking at pictures.

It could be an older HEAD model for example or a unique pro stock racquet mold that is not commercially available. Pretty much everything is possible in the world of pro stock racquets.

Jan-Lennard Struff’s Racquet – Comparing racquets

Back to Jan-Lennard Struff’s racquet. It is interesting to compare his old racquet to his current racquet and I add in the HEAD Graphene 360 Extreme Pro I tested as well to see if you can find any differences based on these pictures. To me, it actually looks like he might be using a pro stock version of the actual Graphene 360 Extreme Pro or MP which would have the HEAD Pro stock code: TGT333.1.

So for now, we can’t really know what racquet Jan-Lennard Struff is using, but no matter what, his change from Babolat to HEAD seems to have worked for him considering his nice run in Indian Wells. The question is now if he can keep the positive momentum up and achieve good results also in the rest of the year. The game is there, but in tennis, it all needs to come together at the right moment of course.

When I count right, Jan-Lennard Struff’s Racquet has 14 main strings on the top and the bottom, before the first cross string comes. On the sold model I count only 12 main strings on these places.

And it looks like, Richard Gasquet uses the same raquet as Struff. Both are 16/19 strings.

Gasquet uses the PT161XL (HEAD LM Instinct Tour XL), I think Struff is using a newer version, but not sure which one.

Joe August 24, 2020 - 19:57

In my opinion he definitely not uses the current version. The strings pattern of his racquet is much closes.
