Argentinian Sebastian Baez is one of the clay court specialists on the ATP Tour. While he is a top player on clay, he rarely wins matches on hard courts or grass.
With his success on clay courts, a lot of fans are curious about his racquet. That’s what we will delve into in this post.
Sebastian Baez currently plays with the 2018 model of the Yonex VCORE Pro 100+ but endorses the newest version of the VCORE Pro 100. Baez strings his racquet with Yonex Polytour Strike (16L Gauge). He used to play with the Babolat Pure Drive.
The Yonex VCORE Pro 100 is not only used by Sebastian Baez; it’s the 4th most popular racquet on the ATP Tour (all VCORE versions). Apart from Baez, players like Hubert Hurkacz, Denis Shapovalov, and Frances Tiafoe use different versions of the Yonex VCORE.
While Sebastian Baez endorses the 2023 Yonex VCORE Pro, he actually plays with the 2018 model of the Yonex VCORE Pro 100+. Like many pro players sponsored by Yonex, Baez strings the racquet with Yonex Polytour Strike.
As a junior, Baez was sponsored by Babolat and played with the Babolat Pure Drive until 2019, which was his breakthrough year at the challenger level. Since 2019, he’s been loyal to the Yonex VCORE Pro 100+.
The Yonex VCORE 97 is more popular at the pro level, but it makes sense why Baez chose the 100+. Being one of the shortest players on the ATP Tour, the extended length of the racquet helps him achieve much more power and reach when serving.
