Radwanska to Srixon

by Jonas Eriksson

We’ve already seen quite a lot of equipment and gear changes among top tennis professionals on the men’s side with Nishikori going from Adidas Barricades to Nike Vapor Tours, Doubles player John Peers switching from Prince Textreme Tour 95 to a Wilson Pro Staff 97 (I assume paint job), Fabio Fognini moving from Adidas apparel to Hydrogen, and youngster Borna Coric now playing with Wilson racquet instead of the Yonex DR 98.

Now we see equipment shifts also on the WTA tour, with Aga Radwanska wielding a Srixon Revo 3.0. Srixon is more famous for their golf equipment, but are now venturing more and more into tennis as well. ATP pro Kevin Anderson is already playing a Srixon Revo CX 2.0 Tour since a while back and I’m sure they’ll add more stars to the roster soon.

The Srixon Revo 3.0 looks very similar to a Babolat mold, which Radwanska should be familiar with as she played the Babolat Pure Drive before the switch.

Another player on the WTA tour who has switched racquets is French #24-ranked player Caroline Garcia who has also moved from Babolat, but to a Yonex Vcore SV 100s, which means another potential “win” for Yonex, who also managed to sign Steve Johnson.

This is from Garcia’s Twitter:

She’s swapped back to her babolat pure drive. Watching Eurosport right now and the guy said that ‘she’s gone back to her old frame with paint after her results this year so far’
So yeah. Seems a bit odd that it was announced on Eurosport. They guy was called Mark something.

Hi Alex, thanks for your comment. Yes, sometimes they talk about racquets also on Eurosport.

You’re right, it seems like she’s playing her old frame blacked-out at the moment. It’s a reminder that it’s not an easy process to change your racquet.

Cheers / Jonas
