A Hungarian tennis club owner has broken the Guinness World Record for the most tennis rackets strung in 24 hours.
Zsolt Velcz, who owns the Match-Point Tennis Club, strung 84 tennis rackets in 24 hours, beating the previous record of 71 set in 2018 by Dutch pro tour stringer Tim Rothengatter. Velcz, who has been stringing tennis rackets for almost 40 years, already broke Rothengatter’s record in the 20th hour of his attempt.
The 70th tennis racket Velcz strung belonged to Austria’s US Open winner Dominic Thiem, the 71st to Hungarian four-time Grand Slam Doubles winner Tímea Babos, while the record-breaking 72nd racket belonged to top Hungarian player Márton Fucsovics.
