Rising Star: Heather Watson Newest Member of Team Babolat

Along with its continued partnership with The Championships, Babolat is pleased to announce that Heather Watson (UK) has chosen to play with Babolat’s Pure Strike tennis racket, complemented by Babolat RPM Blast strings.

Watson started playing tennis at age seven, and at 24-years-old has risen to the top of British women’s tennis. Watson recently won the 2015 Hobart International Singles Title – her first tournament playing for Team Babolat.

“I’m really excited to re-join the Babolat team and family,” said Watson. “I used to play with Babolat when I was little, and as soon as I picked up the Pure Strike this past off-season I knew it was the racket for me. I’m looking forward to winning many more titles with my new Babolat racket!”

At The Championships, Wimbledon, Watson will play with the special edition Babolat Pure Strike Wimbledon racket, echoing the competition’s signature colors.
