Designed specially for the 2012 French Open at Roland Garros, the Babolat AeroPro Lite French Open tennis racquet is striking both in terms of appearance and performance. This racquet is engineered to offer speed, control and spin in a lightweight package. Similar to the standard AeroPro Lite, the racquet offers excellent racquet head speed and maneuverability, which is perfect for players who rely on fast ground strokes, great court coverage and excellent spin control. The Active Cortex technology provides this racquet with increased touch, both from the base line and especially at the net. This French Open version of the racquet has been given a stylish and chic red, black and white paint job, which really sets it apart from the rest of the range.
