The fact that both current world number ones, Novak Djokovic and Ashleigh Barty, endorse the Head Graphene 360+ Speed Pro tells you everything you need to know about this high-quality racket.
Built around its name, Speed, the Head Graphene 360+ is a fast, precise racket designed for players of an intermediate to advanced level. For the updated 2020 model, Head have introduced the very popular Graphene 360+ technology which provides more flexibility and feel. The new design also offers better stability, ideal for players looking to swing hard through groundstrokes and still keep control.
In addition to the added weight on Djokovic’s serve, the Head Graphene 360+ Speed Pro complements the Serb’s game style perfectly. Built around precision, relentless consistency and, of course, speed, the Head Speed Pro allows the 17-time Grand Slam winner to combine these attributes seamlessly. Perhaps an underrated part of Djokovic’s game – his exceptional touch and feel – is another core feature of the racket. The Head Speed Pro, despite its power and ability to generate spin, has always had feel and control at its centre, and this is a big reason for Ashleigh Barty’s recent successes.

World number one Barty, who won the French Open using the Head Graphene 360+ Speed Pro, has an eclectic game. The Australian is well-known for her unique style, mixing backhand slices with heavy topspin groundstrokes and a big serve. The Head Speed Pro allows Barty to utilise her varied strokes by providing the right blend of power, spin, feel and control.
In addition to Barty, a high proportion of the game’s top female professionals also use the Head Graphene 360+ Speed Pro. Bianca Andreescu, the exciting 21-year-old from Canada, is the pick of the world’s leading players using the racket, along with Barty. The former US Open champion and world number five relies on explosive power and huge groundstrokes, a game style that contrasts sharply with Barty’s craftiness. These two superstars in the making demonstrate the versatility of the Head Speed Pro, showing that it really is a racket for all styles.

With a host of up-and-coming stars such as Andreescu endorsing the racket, as well as the continuing dominance of Djokovic, the Head Speed Pro is sure to be at the top of professional tennis for years to come. Suitable for all styles of play, this a hugely popular racket not to missed!
