Rafa Nadal: First Match, First Data

May 28, 2015

Rafael Nadal won his first round match today. For the first time at the French Open, Rafael Nadal is playing with his connected racket, the Babolat PLAY Aeropro Drive. For the first time in a Grand Slam tournament, Rafael Nadal’s data are visible and accessible post-match for the general public on the Babolat booth, at the RG Lab and on the official Roland-Garros website thanks to Babolat’s collaboration with IBM. Many Babolat team players are using connected rackets. Their data are also available on the same platforms. Here are the data from Rafa’s first set.
