The racquet is a specially designed Blade 104 Serena Williams Autograph model (the Wilson racquet model the living legend plays with on tour). Featuring a stealth black frame with iridescent gold accents at the three and nine o’clock positions on the frame, the design uses gold to highlight the major trophies of Serena Williams’ Grand Slam victories, the number 23, and her signature.

    Well, Wilson, it’s about darn time! But it being a limited-edition is quite ridiculous. The Williams sisters pretty much put you guys on the map and helped to elevate your brand (especially Serena), which inspired many others to use your brand. The least you can do is permanently name a racket after Serena Williams. After all, she is the GOAT. #HELPINGYOURCOMPANYMAKEDOLLARS!
