Having won 23 Grand Slam titles in singles and 14 Grand Slam titles in doubles, there is no disputing the fact that Serena Williams (or “SW) is one of the greatest female players of all time.
Due to her success and popularity, many fans wonder whether it is possible to buy the racket Serena Williams plays with.
This article will look to answer that question and provide you with details on whether the retail version is at all similar to the racket SW played with on the WTA Tour.
What Racket Does Serena Williams play with?
Serena’s racket is the Wilson Blade 102 (SW) Autograph which she played with from 2020 until she retired in 2022.
SW previously used a Blade 104 but switched to the Blade 102 in early 2020.
Along with Roger Federer, SW is one of the few players that Wilson has chosen to produce Autograph rackets for.
Racket Specifications (Retail Version)
Below are the specifications for the retail version of Serena’s Racket.
Unlike many other pro players, the specs of SW’s racket that she uses to play are very close to the retail version you can buy online.

Does Serena play with a Vibration Dampener?

Should I buy the Wilson Blade 102 SW Autograph?
The Blade 102 SW is not going to be for everyone as it has a very heavy swing weight which will mean it is not suitable for beginner to intermediate players.
At 28 inches long, the length of the racket will not suit players who hit with a one handed backhand as it will be a lot more difficult to maneuver on backhand shots.
The SW 102 will be best suited to advanced players who have a two handed backhand as the extra length won’t be an issue for them.
