Victoria Azarenka proved why she is the top ranked woman on the WTA Tour, defeating Li Na in three sets to win her second consecutive Australian Open title. Her tactics may be controversial, but no one can deny her heart and desire to win. Let’s take a look at what the champion was wearing during this year’s first Grand Slam.
Vika uses the Wilson BLX Juice 100. It’s a stiff and powerful player’s frame with lots of access to power and spin, very similar to a Babolat AeroPro Drive. Our playtesters found this to be maneuverable and very forgiving, ideal for strong players looking for a little extra pop to add to their game.
Strings and shoes. The two things that always need replacing. As far as shoes are concerned, there are a lot of factors that add to this, such as how much you’re playing, what surface you’re playing on, your footwork.. Basically, the replacement rate comes from how harsh you are on your shoes. The best thing I love about shoes is that you’re not stuck with any certain type for too long. Yes, we all have our favorites, but tennis companies are understanding that while we not only want to try different types of shoes, we want different colors in our favorite shoes.
Our website is SO big, and ALWAYS changing, so I thought I would make things easy and highlight some of the cool new colorways we have in our shoe lines (yes, I’m nice, oh, stop flattering me, I make things easy for you? I know).

Are these cool? Uh ya. I sit next to Jason in the office and after bullying him to look at my blog, we both agreed that the Vapor 9s and the Courtballistecs have the coolest colorways right now.
