The third generation of the Pure Strike is endorsed by several professional players, who play an aggressive attacking game.
Dominic Thiem is an Austrian tennis player who has won 17 ATP Tour titles, including one Grand Slam win at the 2020 US Open. He has rivalries with Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, and Roger Federer, and Djokovic praised Thiem after losing to him at the 2019 ATP Finals for his "courageous tennis". Thiem is an aggressive baseliner, with some of the biggest groundstrokes on the ATP tour, consistently hitting big with both his forehand and his single handed backhand. He returns serves from as far back as possible, which allows him to take more time and prepare full swings. His big groundstrokes and aggressive playing style has earned him several wins against the Big 3 and his heavy backhand/forehand allows him to attack and defend well.
Cameron Norrie is the British number 1 in singles tennis and he reached a career high ranking of world number 12 in November 2021. With three ATP Tour singles titles, Norrie is considered a modern counter puncher. Norrie has great ball and shot tolerance, with the ability to neutralize pace and spin with good court positioning and speed. His groundstrokes are consistent but they vary in style, a topspin forehand with a long back-swing compared to a short take back on a flat backhand. His strengths lie in frustrating opponents and constructing points, and he possesses a good net game, despite his lack of power compared to other players on the Tour.
Anett Kontaveit is a professional tennis player who reached a career high ranking of world number 5 in 2022. She became the first Estonian tennis player to participate and reach the 2021 WTA Finals. Kontaveit has won six singles titles on the WTA Tour as well as eleven singles and five doubles titles on the ITF Circuit. She also won the Estonian Championships in 2009, being the youngest player ever in Estonia to do so. Kontaveit is an aggressive baseliner who utilizes a variety of shots to draw unforced errors from her opponents. Her forehand and backhands are flat, but she can slice effectively. Her serves are powerful, yet she can employ kick and slice second serves, and she has a solid game up at the net due to her doubles experience. She is an aggressive and proactive player, who dominates her opponents through sheer power confidence.
Alizé Cornet is a French professional tennis player who has won six WTA singles titles and two doubles titles on the ITF circuit. She is currently the French number 1 in singles tennis. In 2014, she defeated Serena Williams on three occasions before winning her fifth and sixth WTA titles in 2016 and 2018. Cornet is a baseliner whose favorite shot is the backhand and her favorite surface is clay.
