Whether you are Rafael Nadal or a beginner, the Babolat Pure Aero range has something for everyone.
The Babolat Pure Aero, made popular by the legendary Spaniard, prides itself on its ability to generate heavy topspin and power to aid an aggressive baseline game. The Pure Aero is extremely popular on the professional tours, and is one of the most used rackets amongst junior players. The Pure Aero’s light 300g weight is ideal for club players right through to advanced level players, and is a key factor in generating the fast racket head speed associated with the racket. Babolat has also updated the range to include the new Cortex Pure Feel technology, which increases control and dampens potentially injury-causing vibrations.
Nadal’s unique game style, based on raw power and spin, has defined the Pure Aero in previous years, but rising star Felix Auger-Aliassime is taking the brand further with his exciting and dynamic power game.

The young Canadian, ranked number 20 in the world, uses the Pure Aero to hit huge forehands and serves, overwhelming opponents with his ability to take control of points. Like Nadal, Auger-Aliassime likes to run around his backhand to hit crushing forehands, a style of play complemented by the Pure Aero. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, the former Grand Slam finalist and big-hitting Frenchman, also adopts the aggressive forehand approach with the Pure Aero.
On the women’s side, world number 11 Johanna Konta is the highest ranked player currently using the Babolat Pure Aero range. Konta, like her male counterparts, uses the Babolat Pure Aero to support her main weapons – the serve and forehand. Elsewhere, recently retired former world number one and Grand Slam champion Caroline Wozniacki is the best-known female to endorse the racket. The Dane won the Australian Open with her relentless baseline consistency and heavy spin, and is undoubtedly largely behind the popularity of the Pure Aero amongst female junior players.
For those players whose game relies on other attributes than power and spin, do not worry! Entertaining Frenchman Benoit Paire breaks the mould of big hitting professional players using the Babolat Pure Aero, reflecting the versatility of the racket. Paire’s game relies on exceptional touch and feel, showing that the Pure Aero is suitable for any type of player.
In conclusion, the Babolat Pure Aero is a highly popular racket for all levels, ages and game styles! The racket is in safe hands with next generation stars such as Auger-Aliassime, ensuring that the range will remain at the forefront of racket brands for the coming years.
