Forget the Blade 98 16x19. It was an afterthought of a racquet from Wilson. The Blade 18x20, however, is a fantastic frame (and more comparable to the speed pro).

That being said, I think that the Blade 98 (18x20) would benefit you more in terms of control, flat shots, and net game. The Speed Pro would give a little bit better spin from the baseline, but I think that the Blade is a better overall racquet based on the categories you asked about. Feel free to ask any more questions.

Hands down graphene speed pro. I found it to have more spin, control, and about the same power. The blade 16x19 might be a little more comfortable, but not by a whole lot. I didn't have issues with either of them. The graphene with the 18x20 as opposed to the 16x19 would also hit flatter shots better, BUT the graphene speed pro is a very spin friendly 18x20, it's overall just an awesome racquet.
