In an unexpected move, Andy Murray is testing a new Yonex racket just months before his planned retirement this summer. Throughout most of his career, Murray has been associated with the Head brand, making this late switch particularly surprising.

@sotennis1 posted on X, “Before entering the competition at @BNPPprimrose, @andy_murray is currently training on court 1 of @VillaPrimroseBx. The opportunity to see that the Briton, on the racquet side, is now playing with @yonex_com.”

The switch to Yonex has sparked curiosity and speculation within the tennis community, as players typically avoid changing equipment so close to retirement. Murray’s decision to experiment with a new racket so late in his career adds an intriguing twist to his final months on the professional tour. Fans and analysts alike are eager to see how this change might impact his performance in upcoming tournaments.
