| |Up for auction is a lightly used 2011 Babolat Aero Pro Drive (French Open edition) with a 4 1/2 grip. This particular model is considered one of the most attractive racquets to ever be produced by Babolat, or any other racquet maker for that matter. With the exception of the slightly soiled grip and bumper guard the racquet is in outstanding condition. This frame has a couple of almost unnoticeable paint chips around the hoop. Bumper guard does show some wear, but is still in excellent shape as the photo shows. I have a number of these frames that I used to teach and play USTA matches with over the past couple of seasons. As I'm switching over to a different Babolat frame for 2017. I thought it would be a good time to sell the frames that I have. Not many of these frames available anymore, certainly not in this condition or at this price! Originally sold for $159 +.
