WE LOVE TENNIS <3
Bublik is one of the most entertaining players on a tennis court. He often comes as arrogant and playful instead of focused and disciplined. But that is a part of his game and the crowd loves him for that.
I also like to watch his matches, especially when in form, with all the variations and the skills he brings on the court, just like Nick Kyrgios.
We can say that he is a successful tennis player, after all, winning an ATP title in Montpellier against Zverev and more than $4 million in prize money. But he will probably never win a Major title if he keeps the same attitude.
So what does Bublik use to produce his fun tennis?
Alexander Bublik plays with a Yonex EZONE DR 98 racquet painted to look like a new EZONE 98.
Bublik’s Racquet Specs
The DR 98 is an older frame that is stiffer and heavier than the new EZONE frames out there.
However, the racquet offers amazing pop and spin and this is why advanced players like it.
The feel is also good while the stability of the racquet remains decent thanks to the dampening technology.
The DR 98 plays plush and powerful while having complete control of the ball.
Comfort is probably the drawback of this magnificent racquet. Some players experience arm issues in the long run.
Here are the specs.
|Head size||98 sq in|
|Weight||11.5oz / 326gr|
|Balance||6 pts HL|
Bublik’s Racquet Strings
Alexander Bublik strings his racquet with a full bed of Yonex Polytour Pro 1.25 yellow strings.
His latest known racquet tension is between 22 and 24 kg (49-53 lbs), depending on the conditions.
They are firm and responsive poly strings that players choose to have spin and control of the ball.
Has he changed his strings?
In the beginning of 2022, he started using a hybrid setup by adding either multifilament or natural gut white strings in the crosses, for more comfort and power.
But he went back later on to his full bed setup of the Polytour Pro 1.25. Maybe he felt he lacked control and desired more spin.
