Elena Rybakina’s Tennis Racquet (2023 Season)

The Russian no.1 tennis player is one of the hardest hitters on the WTA Tour. With her powerful serve and groundstrokes, she’s a nightmare to play against.

Besides her tennis shoes, many fans are curious about Rybakina’s tennis racquet. That’s what we will delve into in this post.

Elena Rybakina plays with the Yonex VCORE SV 100 but endorses the Yonex VCORE 100. She strings her racquet with Yonex PolyTour Fire. Rybakina has used this racquet setup since turning pro in 2016.

If you’re wondering what the differences are between the racquet she endorses, the VCORE 100, and her actual racquet, the VCORE SV 100 – it’s an older model in the same racquet line.

Yonex VCORE racquets used to be called VCORE SV but removed the SV on the newer models, so Rybakina plays with an older model of the Yonex VCORE 100 that she endorses.

She strings the racquet with Yonex PolyTour Fire, which gives her plenty of both power and spin. It seems to suit her game perfectly.

Here are Elena Rybakina’s racquet specs:

  • Head Size: 100 sq. in
  • Length: 27 in
  • Weight (unstrung): 11 oz / 311g
  • Balance (unstrung): 320 mm
  • String Pattern: 16×19
  • Stiffness: 69
  • Paint: Yonex VCORE 100

Depending on the conditions, Rybakina’s racquet specs will change; however, these were the specs that she used at the Australian Open 2023 (she lost in the final).
