Tommy Paul Racquet – What Does He Use?

Tommy Paul is a promising American tennis player who won Roland Garros 2015 in his junior days after beating compatriot Taylor Fritz.

On the court, the American possesses powerful deep groundstrokes with pace and spin. In addition, his excellent footwork and speed help him cover the court effortlessly.
