Anyone know what racquet and string he uses?
BLX 6.1 Tour, apparently. With an hybrid of some kind.
I love this guy and am also curious what he uses.
I also really like his game. It's so unusual.
he acts like hes totally exhausted when he plays. like he can barely walk back to the baseline after every point.
Actually as strangely as he plays,
hes got some fluidity as well.
nice guy to watch.
only 21 too
I saw this guy play Stepenek and give him a pretty good match, although he needed the trainer in the 2nd. I think he would have beaten him if it werent for the set back.
The wilson he was using looked like a box-beam version of a 95. Definitely not 90 sq inch. My friend has an asian version of the box-beamed Ncode 95 which is really head heavy and quite weird.
Sorry, I've never seen him play before, what makes it so unique?
Take a look
So he gets really into it, and jumps into a lot of shots coupled with seemingly unecessary acrobatics. But other than that, he seems to be a very good shot maker...
It looks like he is using the Pro Staff 95 6.0 under the BLX 6.1 Tour paint job.
It would be cool if wilson would make an update to this racquet.
He kind of looks like martina hingis...
Let's just call it the H22
But that is a different racquet........
exactly, the thing on the picture has nothing with the H22...
agree with unecessary acrobatics forehand. but his serve is pretty good. just need consistency and no need to throw his racket every time he lost a point.
What apparel is he wearing?
This guy clearly looks like he has quite a bit of talent. Hopefully, he'll get some really good results in some tourneys and work his way up the rankings. I read his ATP Profile. It looks like both his parents were great athletes. His Mother was a former gymnast and his father was a former pro player. He looks like he's quite quick and athletic, but he's probably getting used to playing against better and better players at bigger tourneys. I like the shotmaking I've seen from him in clips, but have not watched whole matches. He seems like a nice guy out there and he's enjoying himself. He's looks very creative on the Court from what I've seen. He's up to #66, so perhaps he can win some rounds at the FO. Clay looks like his best surface, but let's watch and see him progress.
my actual coach was coached by jack reader that is oleksandr coach.
I can ask him something about his racquet
Is anyone able to answer?
saw him lose couple years ago in aus qualifying.
ok shots, movement. shame he's a headcase.
I assume it is a PS 95 original 16-18 string pattern with new BLX pj.
....square box beam,only for pros,I got two with ncode pj from a wilson insider.
...even the frenchman Stephane Robert might be using the same racquet.
LoS (Label of Sportswear)
One of their many new signings, along with Granollers, Youzhny, Troicki and Robredo among others
Is that Federers signiture on the Racket?
He uses a retail wilson blx 6.1 tour 16x18, no lead
Strings : Mains Luxilon Big Banger Ace Gold, Crosses Wilson Natural Gut, didn't remember the tension....
the throat area looks like a 6.0 95. any count how many crosses?
Ugliest groundies since Courier
Pro Staff 95, BLX SixOne Tour pj.
LXN Ace 112 gold mains, 25kgs or 55lbs.
Wilson Nat gut crosses, 24kgs/52,5lbs.
I have been following Dolgopolov a bit closely this year... He is explosive... he attacks every ball. He is not attacking in the sense of going to the net but he takes wild shots all the time... he is going for winners.
The problem with Dolgopolov is that he is making to many UE's and he has poor return game. If he improves these two I can call him the young Federer of the new era... If dolgopolov gains some consistency with his game then he will do magical things in terms of Masters results.
He has good serve and generally he generates so much speed and he looks so tiny.
He chips and slices the ball very nicely.
I think he has to tame his wilderness a bit but then maybe this wilderness attacking every ball is that makes him unique. He scores aces from 2nd serve...
He is is a potential top 10 player if he improves return and reduces UE's...
Is he using an extreme western grip?
Great eye... it does appear to be a PS 95 6.0
The strings look like natural gut crosses and poly (Red Code?) mains
i strung for him at eastbourne and i'm pretty sure that it is PS 95 6.0. definitely not 90sq inch. the strings are luxilon ace and gut
He reminds me of a right handed Marcelo Rios. With his hands and touch.
If I was a touring pro, I would not want another touring pro's signature on my frame, however
Interesting they'd also stick the Tour PJ on the frame rather than the BLX 95 PJ
I'm with you on that, if I were a player and I had to play Federer, I would be embarrassed!
It's a PS original 95 with the new pj, saw it in Umag ATP in the stringers room.
