WE LOVE TENNIS <3
Ben Shelton is another young tennis talent from the USA. He is a part of a promising generation having players like Korda, Tiafoe, Wolf, Paul, Nakashima, and many others compete in the biggest tournaments.
Ben is following the path of his father Bryan Shelton, a former tennis player with a successful career.
He is already a Top 100 player and could rank even higher after a brilliant Australian Open in 2023.
On the court, he has a powerful and effective serve as well as a good net game. He also is consistent from the baseline with his left-handed forehand and double-handed backhand.
Ben Shelton recently switched to the Yonex EZONE 98 racquet.
Shelton Racquet Specs
With 98 sq. in. in the head size and a string pattern of 16×19, the EZONE 98 is perfect for big hitters looking for power and spin with control.
Shelton used to play with a weight close to12.5oz / 355gr. That must mean that he adds more weight to his current racquet to crank up the power level and swingweight.
These are the standard specs of Shelton’s racquets as there is no confirmed info about eventual customizations.

Shelton Racquet Strings
Ben strings his racquet with the Yonex Polytour Pro at 52 lbs.
