According to Serena Williams on the Miami Open, “The tournament’s attendance through the years has continued to increase, and I’ve been fortunate to have the fans’ loyal support. I hear “Come on, Serena!” cheers in many languages when I play in Miami. I love the diversity and the passion of the crowds. The mix of cultures and the incredible energy make it so fun to play.
The Miami Open has played an important role in my life and the lives of so many others. The event has always supported up-and-coming players, giving wild cards over the years to Pete Sampras, Andre Agassi, Andy Roddick, Steffi Graf, Monica Seles and James Blake before anyone had heard of them. In 1997, the tournament offered a wild card to Venus when she was just 16 years old.”
Presented is one of Serena’s Wilson Blade 104 tennis rackets as it was part of her equipment for the 2016 Miami Open Tournament. The match it was used it is showcased on the affixed small central Wilson label. In this match up, she played against Svetlana Kuznetsova of Russia in their fourth round match. The tournament was presented by Itau at Crandon Park Tennis Center on March 28, 2016 in Key Biscayne, Florida.
This racket shows heavy use as you can see the top portion has court wear and the interior strings have strong wear. The white taping on the handle is custom and has evident soiling. There is also a Wilson hologram where the taping begins. This racket is custom for her as it bears her name “SERENA” in gold foil on the inside. Overall, top to bottom it measures 27-3/4″ with an 11″ headspan.
Obtained directly from her camp and out her tennis bag, there is not better racket to include in your collection.
Authentication: 100% Authentic Team, Photo style match, Wilson (manufacturer’s labeling).
