Babolat Pure Drive French Open Racquet

Babolat Pure Drive French Open

Babolat is a French company and Roland Garros is obviously special to Babolat. They are a major sponsor and Babolat is also behind the official tennis ball used at Roland Garros. The Pure Drive French Open is dedicated to this Grand Slam tournament and it features the official logo of Roland Garros. There is also a subtle indication of the French flag around the logo. This is the only grand slam on red clay and the color of that clay has been incorporated into the grip color.

True fans of the French Open are going to enjoy the paintjob on Pure Drive French Open, which is 100% identical in technology and performance to the Babolat Pure Drive. The inspiration from this paintjob could help you to give it your all in every point as you are sliding to reach even the most impossible balls on your favorite surface. The intimidation on the opposing player could also give you an edge as they realize you are a hard core clay court player.

It is no surprise that the Pure Drive French Open works very well on red clay. The open string pattern allows for extra spin and a swingweight of 308 makes it easier to generate some power on those hard to reach balls, where you have been sliding for 4-8 feet just to get the racquet on the ball.
