What a racquet: Babolat Play Pure Drive offers 'virtual tennis coaching'

A handful of the world’s best tennis players will show up at tournaments within weeks armed with new technology they hope will give them an advantage at Roland Garros and Wimbledon, according to Eric Babolat, the man behind the “smart racquets”.

The Babolat Play Pure Drive is the world’s first interactive tennis racquet, packed with sensors that collect data and analyze performance to help players improve their game.
