Designed to meet the demands of a truly legendary player, the Wilson Blade 102 Serena Williams Autograph features a slightly smaller headsize compared to previous generations, increasing control while maintaining the power and playability that have made the Blade such a popular racket on tour.
It’s also equipped with Countervail Technology, a unique layer of carbon fibre within the frame of the racket that disperses the energy of the ball on impact, reducing vibration and minimising fatigue. The feel of the racket stays the same, but you expend less energy stabilising the arm during each shot, allowing you to stay in control throughout your match and dictate the play in decisive moments.
Weighing in at 305g with the smaller 102 sq in headsize and a dense 18x19 string pattern, the Blade 102 Autograph is built for the aggressive baseline play that typifies Serena’s game. If you like hitting the ball hard and deep with pinpoint accuracy, you’ll love this new setup. As usual for an SW racket, its extended 28in length makes it perfect for trademark power serves, too.

Measuring Your Grip Size
Choosing the right grip size is a vital part of playing tennis. The right grip size will make your racket feel natural and comfortable.
Use a ruler and measure (in inches) from the crease fold in your hand, to the top of your ring finger. Please see table below:
Note: It is always better to go for a smaller grip size, as you can easily increase your grip size with over grips.
