I was watching Sorana Cirstea practice in Paris and it looked like she was hitting with a racket that was not her normal Wilson Blade 98. It was pretty blacked out and looked like a prototype. Maybe a new Blade BLX or some different Wilson BLX racket??
I don't know. One thing is for sure, she was hitting well with it in practice, but what was strange was she then played the match with her Blade 98.
I got close to the bench to take a photo of the racket when she was talking to Sven and Darren, the Adidas coaches to try and get a closer look.
I took some photos with my mobile phone and hope you like them.
Maybe the new racket will help her get back on the right track at Wimbledon!
Always a Sorana fan forever!
Thanks for the pics and welcome to the forum
about the racket - it looks the same to me
