French Open is Delayed But Wilson’s New Rackets Are Right On Time

We may not have Rafa on the Red Clay of Roland Garros this summer, but Wilson is making sure we have new equipment to remind us of all those great matches!

As courts around the world begin to reopen, Wilson Sporting Goods unveils two new Roland Garros inspired high performance tennis rackets. The exclusive Roland Garros (RG) Edition rackets include the Clash 100 RG and the Blade 98 (16×19) v7.0 RG, which feature designs inspired by the venerable clay court Grand Slam.

Both rackets present a modern aesthetic that reflects the red clay of Roland Garros. Clay-colored accents at the tip of each racket’s frame are complemented by timeless Slate Gray and White at the three and nine o’clock positions for the Blade, and Maritime Navy and Slate Gray for the Clash. The rackets also feature a matching red clay hued grip to complete the design.

Special features of these limited edition rackets include:

• Clash 100 RG Edition: newly patented 3D bending technology for
confidence and control (MRP $249; SRP 250€).
• Blade 98 16×19) v7.0 RG Edition: cutting edge FeelFlex™ technology
provides next level performance and a more connected to the ball feel
(MRP $219; SRP

The Clash 100 and Blade 98 (16×19) v7.0 RG Editions are available on www.wilson.com or at specialty tennis retailers worldwide.

I’ve been using Wilson rackets since I first started playing tennis as a young child and am a loyal fan. I can’t wait to take these two new versions out for a Test Drive once I return to the court!
