Description

Wimbledon is celebrated for its timeless style and traditions. From the iconic white dress code to the lush green grass courts, Wimbledon exudes a unique elegance. The Pure Drive, a renowned Babolat tennis racquet since 1994, remains one of the most popular and versatile racquets. It has been continually enhanced over the years to adapt to the evolving game. With a modern design inspired by the legendary Wimbledon Grand Slam, the Pure Drive Wimbledon offers an exclusive look. If you desire a balance of power and feel in every shot, the Pure Drive is the racquet for you.

At 100 square inches, the head size is a typical size for the majority of players and should provide a blend of control and power while it's open string pattern will generate easier spin and power. It's weight at 10.6 ounces has enough impact to provide great stability for intense play without being the heaviest racquet for easier access to power for long baseline rallies. It's head-light balance assists with all-court play enabling faster cuts at the ball for easier spin or quick corrections. When compared to a traditional flat-beam racquet, the elliptical frame shape carried over from previous generations offers extra stability and energy transfer due to it's resistance to twisting especially on off-center hits which translates to more consistent power. This should become more apparent for players who prefer to stick at the baseline and hit heavier shots.

This racquet features "High Torsional Rigidity" which is an addition to the graphite construction which results in increased energy transfer on ball strike. Players should notice this effect even more on heavier shots which should result in additional power potential. With increased power in their game comes the potential for players to encounter more vibration, so the racquet has advanced vibration control with the vibration filtering material, "SWX Pure Feel", which can help to assist with reducing vibration especially on off-center hits without sacrificing the feel of the ball.

With this cosmetic update, Pure Drive fans can get the same excellent performance while celebrating the modern legendary racquet. New players will welcome the dynamic experience this racquet brings with it's trademark power and spin-friendly potential.

To determine your grip size without using a racquet, measure from the tip of your ring finger to the major fold crease in your palm. Write down the distance to the nearest 8th of an inch. This is your standard grip size.

Grip size palm measurements for tennis racquets

If you fall somewhere between the measurements, it is recommended to choose the smaller grip size as you can always build the grip size up using an overgrip (for a slight increase) or a grip build-up sleeve (for a half or full size increase). The grip measurements above factor in the pre-installed factory grip.
