Top 10 Products you can buy for the French Open
The French Open is quickly approaching, which means that a bunch of players will be switching outfits, accessories, and color schemes. For us mere mortals, that means that there are going to be a bunch of new products out just in time for you to represent tennis and silently cheer on your favorites. Let’s take a look at some of the staff’s favorite items, and the best selling pieces of this year’s French Open.
This top is going to be worn by German tennis superstar, Angelique Kerber. Even though she hasn’t been playing too well in the last couple of months, she is going to be looking super clean in this breathable and lightweight top. grab it right here in black, if that is more your style.
With brand new colors exclusive for Roland Garros, Babolat has updated their already high quality bag. If you like to be different but don’t want to sacrifice mainstream quality to do so, this is the bag for you. See Tsonga rocking this on the clay.
3: Reverse Color Wilson Blade’s and Burns
While not exactly exclusive to the French Open, Wilson’s players will be debuting this new color scheme at the tournament. The racquets which will be reversed in color are the Burn 100 Countervail, Burn 100ls, Blade 98 18×20 Countervail, and Blade 98l 16×19. Unfortunately we will not see a reverse color racquets in the ever popular Burn 95 or the Blade 104 Pink – at least not yet.
Grips are often overlooked, but can make or break a tennis outfit. To match the red dirt of Roland Garros, Babolat is offering 2 clay colored grips along with one white one. Endorsed and used by Rafael Nadal, this grip is durable, tacky, and comfortable on the hand.
The Gel-Solution Speed 3’s are some of the more popular shoes on the market today for their combination of lightweight and stability. We usually see interesting color schemes from ASICS, and I think that this shoe perfectly aligns with what we are used to seeing. Cool white and blue passport prints make this shoe perfect for the world traveler.
Sticking with the theme of high performing and lightweight shoes, the Adizero’s are some of the most streamlined shoes on the market. The mesh upper and thin outsole make this shoe low on material count, but the tight ankle support and the hard plastic around the heel give the shoe the stability it needs. Coming in a brand new green color, adidas has pulled out all of the stops to make their French Open outfits the most put-together. See Alexander Zverev playing in this shoe as he takes the clay courts in style.
Featuring the same new color scheme as the French Open bag, this racquet is going to be an exclusive hit this season. Breaking away from the traditional Black and Yellow color scheme, this racquet will stick out a bit more – if that is even possible. It is the exact same construction as the traditional Pure Aero, so don’t worry, you won’t be sacrificing any swing speed or spin.

Worn by up-and-comer Kristina Mladenovic, this dress is designed to accentuate your natural grace and style. A flowing bottom and a color blocked top will offset the overwhelming red color given off by the clay. Built in shorts and bra make this dress a powerhouse in women’s functional fashion.
Better grab some sunscreen, because you’re going to spend a lot of time in the sun with your new gear!
