Top 5 Professional Tennis Rackets

Top 5 Professional Tennis Rackets

Choosing a new racket can be a tough decision, especially if you're a professional, and with so many to pick from, and so many stringing combinations it's a difficult decison! TennisHQ is here to help and our team has selected their best tennis rackets for professional level tennis players. 

To help you best work out what to choose, these 3 main aspects to consider first: 

1. Where you intend to play & at what level will you competing?

2. What are your strengths/weakenesses as a tennis player and how can your racket choice add to your game?

3. What's your budget and how much are you willing to spend?

If you're needing further advice other than what's below on how to choose - check out our Ultimate Tennis Racket Buying Guide.

Also check our full range of Advanced Tennis Rackets & Professional Tennis Rackets.

NOTE: A number of the recommendations below may go out of stock, in addition to this remember what we suggest doesn't necessarily make it the best racket for you personally!

1. Yonex EZONE 98 Tennis Racket

Yonex Ezone 98 Tennis Racket

Match Type: Attacking
Style of Racket: Power
Player Level: Professional

Yonex rackets are growing in popularity every year and the Japanese brand has really built momentum by consistently producing top quality rackets, manufactured to the highest standards.

The updated Ezone 98, endorsed by Nick Kyrgios, offers a great balance of comfort, power and control. As is typical with Yonex rackets, the Ezone has a large sweet spot and the 2022 edition seems more control orientated than previous versions, due to a slight upgrade in stiffness, making it more stable at impact. 

We believe it will be well suited to the majority of game styles and is particularly player friendly for an advanced racket. 

2. Babolat Pure Drive Plus Tennis Racket

Babolat Pure Drive Plus Tennis Racket

Match Type: Attacking
Style of Racket: Power
Player Level: Professional

To serious tennis players, the Pure Drive needs no introduction. As one of the best selling rackets of the 21st century you really can’t go too far wrong with a Pure Drive and the latest iteration is no exception. We are big fans of the ‘Plus’ version - which is an extra ½ inch in length to the standard version - as we love the extra pop and angle on our serves.

First impressions are lasting and the new cosmetics for 2021 are stunning, still staying true to the blue heritage of the range. On court the racket delivers the Pure Drive signature blend of power and stability whilst maintaining manoeuvrability, despite the added length in the Plus version. The introduction of Babolat’s Smac Wrap eXtended technology has added greater comfort without compromising on feel and the new high torsional rigidity system has improved stability at impact.

There isn’t really anything about this racket that we don’t like. For a strong, advanced level player, wanting power and spin from the baseline, this may be the one.

3. Technifibre T-Flight Iso 305 Tennis Racket

Technifibre T-Flight Iso 305 Tennis Racket

Match Type: Aggressive Dominant
Style of Racket: Power
Player Level: Professional

Technifibre racket frames have exploded in popularity in recent years and the French manufacturer seems to be going from strength to strength. Endorsed by world number one (at time of writing) Daniil Medvedev, the T-Flight Iso 305 is sure to be a top seller for players looking to try and emulate his complete game style. 

The T-Flight Iso 305 offers a compact 18x19 stringing pattern, giving great control, combined with the new Isoflex system which credits a ‘variable beam stiffness’ in creating a more consistent string bed for power and pinpoint accuracy. The racket does possess a fairly hefty swingweight - meaning it’s not quite as manoeuvrable as others on this list - however the stiffness has been lowered from the previous model, making it more arm friendly and forgiving. 

In summary, the T-Flight Iso 305 is a racket that suits those wanting a balanced level of power and control from a racket and the ability to be a threat from anywhere in court. On top of that, we’re big fans of the clean white paint job, so you’ll look good at the same time!

4. HEAD Radical Pro 2023 Tennis Racket

HEAD Radical Pro 2023 Tennis Racket

Match Type: All Round
Style of Racket: Control and Speed
Player Level: Professional

The HEAD Radical Pro is one of the top selling rackets on the market and we can completely understand why. The HEAD Radical is the weapon of choice for all court players like Andy Murray, Taylor Fritz, Sloane Stephens and Diego Schwartzman. 

Ideal for all court tournament players who love to mix it up, this versatile racket is engineered with HEAD exclusive technologies, including sound grommets which enhance your power through greater string movement while optimizing sound and vibrations.

Overall this is one of the best all-around rackets available. The racket has been a hit with play-testers and sponsored coaches. It is not the most forgiving racket for off-centre hits, however, once dialled in, an advanced all court player will love what this racket has to offer.

5. Yonex Percept 97 Tennis Racket

Match Type: Precision and Position
Style of Racket: Control
Player Level: Professional

The second Yonex racket on our list (Can you tell we’re fans?) is the Yonex Percept 97. The Percept range is the successor to the ever popular VCORE Pro range, with the good spin potential, high levels of control and a fast, manoeuvrable frame.

Yonex has introduced 2G-Namd Flex Force graphite that allows the racket to quickly flex and snap back for faster ball acceleration off the string bed and greater spin. Flex Fuse, a shock-absorbing polymer is also included to aid flex and create a plusher, softer feel.

Whilst not the most powerful racket on our list, we found the Yonex Percept to be really enjoyable to play with. On groundstrokes we were really able to whip the racket through to get plenty of spin, with a nice crisp feel at contact and lots of control.
