WE LOVE TENNIS <3
Maria Sakkari is a talented female tennis player from Athens. Along with compatriot Stephanos Tsitsipas, she is the hope of the Greeks to win a Grand Slam title.
Maria has always been consistent throughout the year playing the latest rounds of the tournaments.
However, she hasn’t seen much success yet and still counts one WTA title only and two Grand Slam semi-final appearances.
People ask what racquet she uses on the court.
Maria Sakkari endorses the Wilson Ultra 100 v3 racquet, but she actually plays with the first generation of the Ultra 100.
Maria Sakkari Racquet Specs
While the racquet Maria plays with is a Wilson Ultra 100, the power weighting system at 3 and 9 o’clock are only available in the first generation of the racquet.
That makes it obvious that she prefers the old version from her junior days.
The Wilson Ultra 100 has a 100 sq in head size and a very thick beam of 1 inch / 26mm. This offers lots of power with little effort if we take into account the low Swingweight of roughly 316.
This racquet comes in a 16×19 string pattern providing lots of spin and power on the serve.
The power weighting system at the sides of the frame gives the racquet more stability, especially at the net.
The downside of the Ultra 100 is the lack of control, which requires good skill and a good choice of string to bring the control element to your game.
These are the specs of the Wilson Ultra 100.
|Head size||100 in² / 645.16 cm²|
|Unstrung weight||10.6 oz / 300 gr|
Maria Sakkari Racquet Strings
Sakkari strings her racquet with the Luxilon Alu Power 1.25. Unfortunately, we don’t know the tension.
In addition, you get more pace and precision in the shots. The string maintenance is also superb with this string.
Can You Buy Sakkari’s Gear?
The Wilson Ultra 100 that Maria plays with under the paint job is difficult to find. You might get lucky and find an old frame on ebay.com.
But the Wilson Ultra 100 v3 that she endorses is available on all platforms. It is a similar racquet in terms of playability with power, spin, and easy maneuverability.
