A racquet made for the Roland Garros enthusiast. Tradition, elegance and design excellence define the look and feel of the Blade 98 (16x19) V9 Roland-Garros 2024, a tennis racquet that embodies the spirit and energy of the prestigious tennis tournament. The preferred choice of avid competitors looking for ultimate feel and control, Wilson's latest Blade maintains weight, balance and swing weight while increasing the firmness and stability for a more connected-to-the-ball feel. Featuring the 2024 Roland-Garros-inspired colors, this racquet uses a braided graphite + basalt frame with a DirectConnect carbon fiber handle, resulting in improved flexibility and enhanced stability.

At 98 square inches, the slightly smaller headsize brings a tighter sweet spot with increased control potential for players able to consistently hit the sweet spot. The open string pattern enhances string movement for easier access to spin and inducing some trampoline effect for increased power generation. The racquet's weight is heavier than average which grants a stable experience for powerful groundstrokes and impactful return of serves while shots outside of the sweet spot benefit from a reduction of unwanted torque and an increase in power generation. The headlight balance of this racquet further enhances a dynamic game's power and touch with faster racquet head speed for improved spin and power generation paired with quick and decisive volleys. The racquet is also quite flexible allowing for a longer dwell-time (the time the ball is in contact with the strings) and therefore an increased feel for the ball.

As the overall specs of this racquet have stayed the same, players who have used previous generations of this racquet will appreciate the improved stability and feel achieved through Wilson's technological improvements. Any competitive player looking for a racquet that provides exceptional control and feel should try this racquet.
