Nadal demonstrates the Babolat Play & Connect, which hopes to revolutionize the sport.

French racket company, Babolat, has created an interactive tennis racket that has a high-tech sensor embedded in the handle. The Play & Connect racket looks and feels like any other racket, but it can allow the player to download instant stats and data over a wireless connection. Players can view their performance on their computer, tablet, or smartphone.

The Babolat Play & Connect racket aims to improve the player’s game with information including the different strokes they’ve played, the position of the ball when it hits the racket, service speed, and power. The data can also be measured against other players and shared with coaches.
