In celebration of the Spaniard’s 10 victories at Roland-Garros - using six generations of Babolat Pure Aero racquets - since 2005, the brand has decided to offer a unique experience to the public. All spectators at Roland-Garros will be able to attend (provided there are enough available places) an exhibition event featuring Nadal and 10 young French hopes, each playing with one of his 10 winning racquets.
The Pure Aero Decima racquet, the latest addition to the Pure Aero family designed by Babolat and on the market since March 2018, will be showcased during this demonstration. It’s with this racquet that Nadal this year won Monte Carlo, Barcelona and Rome, and he will also use it to defend his Roland-Garros title.
The exhibition event, hosted by Marc Maury with the help of Eric Babolat, will also offer the chance for fans to see another former Roland-Garros champion and enjoy the many surprises in store. For example, some may have the opportunity to take part on court as a ball boy or girl. There’ll also be the opportunity to leave with a souvenir photo.
Where: Court 15 at Roland-Garros
Date: Friday 25 May
Note: no tickets are sold at Stade Roland-Garros so remember to buy your tickets through the official ticket office site.
