Rafael Nadal, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Kim Clijsters and Li Na test Babolat's new e-racquet

Babolat's technologically advanced "Play & Connect" racquet made its debut at the French Open yesterday.

It is said that the tennis racquet stuffed with electronic sensors is capable of tracking a player's every slice, spin and smash.

Babolat's players Rafael Nadal, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Kim Clijsters and Li Na tested the product on the clay court in Roland Garros.

According to Reuters, Babolat's aim is to appeal also to non-professional players, who will be able to upload data to an online application and track their performance to improve their game.

However beware because the racquet could potentially burn a hole in your pocket as it costs about 250 euros. It will be available for sale in 2013.

Ana Ivanovic graces cover of Vanidades magazine


Initially I was a bit reluctant to post this picture because it was heavily Photoshop-ed.

However I thought the behind-the-scene photo shoot video is relevant.

You can see the inside pages of this June edition on Ana's official website.

Personally I prefer the natural Ana in the picture below taken during her practice before the French Open next week.

Kim Clijsters to quit after the US Open

Kim Clijsters announced that she will retire after the US Open in a news conference at the headquarters of her sponsors Galaxo in Paal, Belgium.
