Reilly Opelka is one of the most promising next-generation players, with one of the best serves on the tour, he is a threat to any opponent on the ATP Tour. The only player in the world that can compete with Opelka’s serve, is John Isner.
Opelka has only won 1 title in his career, which was in the 250 Series. So, he hasn’t had his real breakthrough yet at the biggest tournaments. However, he is still very young and with his potential, I wouldn’t be surprised if he ends up as a grand slam champion in the future.
With all the success on the court, many wonder what racquet he uses to compete at the very highest level. That’s what we will go through in this post.
What racquet does Reilly Opelka use? Reilly Opelka currently plays with the Wilson Pro Staff 97L Bold Edition. Opelka strings his racquet with Luxlion Alu Power Rough. He has used this new racquet setup since the beginning of 2019 and doesn’t seem to be changing it in the near future.
