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 Serena 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.
Serena had previously used a Blade 104 but switched to the Blade 102 in early 2020.
Unlike many other pro players, the specs of Serena’s racket, are very close to the specs of the retail version (see below).

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.
Also 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.
