    Rafa will not be using his Aero Drive bag at Roland Garros this year. Instead he will be using a special edition "135 years of Babolat" bag. I've seen the bag but i didnt get a chance to get a photo of it. Below is a photo of the racket and cover, the bag is more or less exactly like the cover but in the shape of a Team Line bag.

    Unfortunately none of the pro's are willing to use the special edition cosmetics for the tournament. (AKA, Babolat hasn't offered any of the players enough money yet...)

    It's a Pure Drive. It will be the only special edition racket they will be bringing out. As i said before, none of the pro's will be using the special edtion paint jobs, just the bags!

    Thats the bag. It's in the shape of the Team Line with the specil edition cosmetics. They will have a 12 racket version.

    Tecnifibre are the official stringers of Roland Garros and Rafa normally uses the tournament stringers at most events

    that makes sense, just looks a little odd. Does his camp do his customizing for him or is it done by someone else?

    just got the shoes are realized they are NOT the sweet classic canvas.. these shoes are just nike's version of chuck taylors... they have a line around the bottom and are different... im not a fan of the shoes i received.. good thing i got them from a company that offers free return shipping!

    also notice that the shoes he has on have 2 eyelites at the top of the shoe where they are tucked in.. mine only has one.
