He plays different, thinks different, makes choices outside the box, even for the racket. Daniil Medvedev is the tennis player of the moment, the new No. 4 in the world. Only Djokovic, Nadal, and Thiem are ahead of him. But Daniil has already beaten all of them at the final tournament in London
How did he do it? By inventing the gamble of pulling, from a certain point of the match onwards, only first serve balls. For a set and a half, Nole had always played his second serve. And so he overturned a match that seemed doomed.
Medvedev has a head of his own, very fine and original.
So it is not surprising that he is the only top player to play with a racket that does not come from the majors (Babolat, Head, Wilson, in alphabetical order).
Daniil Medvedev’s Racquet is Tecnifibre T-Fight RS 305
- Head Size:98 in² / 632 cm²
- Length:27in / 68,5cm
- Strung Weight:323g / 11,4oz
- Balance:33,48cm / 3 pts HL
- Composition:Dynacore HD/Graphite
Tecnifibre updates the TFight 305 RS with a new frame and improved feel. Perfect for stronger intermediate and advanced players, this 305g model features a swingweight of 330, which loads it with stability and depth. Unlike the other models, which mount a 16×19 stringbed, the TFight 305 RS has a more control-oriented 18×19 stringbed with more power available for those who can move it efficiently.
For 2020, Tecnifibre redesigns the racquet frame with the innovative RSL Section, which uses a five-sided shape to keep the frame more stable at impact (creating comfort and power). In addition to reinforcing the core area (where the handle and headstock meet), this update benefits from the strategic addition of foam to improve solidity and cushioning. As with the previous version, the TFight 305 RS benefits from two technologies – Xtreme Touch Construction (for stability) and Dynacore HD (for added softness).
From the baseline, this racquet offers a supple and comfortable hitting experience. In addition to giving you the mass you need to redirect high levels of energy, you’ll find enough spin and control to hit precise balls. At net, the TFight 305 manages to offer incredible stability and speed. Overall, with its stable responses, controllable power and great feel, this update remains a solid alternative for intermediate and advanced players.
