What Racket Does Juan Martin Del Potro Use?

Del Potro RacketJuan Martin Del Potro uses the Wilson K Six.One 95 racket, which is designed to allow advanced players to strike the ball with extreme precision and accuracy. The racket was designed to provide the highest level of feel possible, which makes it an excellent choice for both baseline players and those who prefer to hit their winners’ right up at the net.

The head is 95sq. inches in size and allows for a fairly large sweet spot, and really allows players complete control over the trajectory of the ball. The frame works well for everything from big serves to delicate volleys at the net, and is a great choice for the more advanced player. If you don’t generate a lot of your own power it can be a challenging racket to return serve with, but this slight negative is countered by the overall balance of the racket. It’s also capable of generating a great deal of spin without much effot.

Del Potro uses an aggressive power game from the baseline, favouring heavy, deep groundstrokes to go with his big serve. His forehand is one of the biggest on the tour and is definitely his greatest asset, and he uses it to regularly hit winners at over 100mph. His double-handed backhand is a solid shot which, while capable of ripping winners, is generally used as a rallying shot. His other major strength is his serve, which typically gets him a lot of short returns to move in on.
