Geared Up: Aryna Sabalenka serves notice with the help of Wilson and Nike
A closer look at the equipment and apparel that has the world No. 2 off to her best season yet.

WATCH: Sabalenka is coming off of winning her second Mutua Madrid Open title last week.
Wilson Blade 98 (18x20) v8 ($249)
The Blade 98 remains a trusted asset for discerning players thanks to its great feel, dependable response and all-court versatility. While lighter than a traditional player’s racquet, it still packs the stability and swing weight needed to traffic in advanced circles. The tighter string pattern of the 18x20 model gives the frame even greater feedback and control.
Nike Dri-Fit One Luxe Strappy Tank ($52) and Nike Dri-Fit Advantage Short ($65)
The lightweight and soft tank is made with a combination of (75%) recycled polyester and spandex. The strap design promotes breathability and the Dri-Fit fabric helps with moisture management.
The mid-rise Short sports an elastic waistband for a snug, comfortable fit. It has a built-in shortie for coverage and ball storage, with a flowy outer layer that adjusts to your movements.
Using player feedback, Nike has engineered the NXT to be the ultimate in lightweight responsiveness. A large, curved Zoom Air unit has been placed in the forefoot to provide adaptive cushioning and bounce into every step. An internal plate in the midsole keeps the shoe’s composure in and out of hard breaks. And a data-driven, minimal outsole design provides the right levels of grip and give without adding unnecessary weight.
