Tennis Stars Embrace Ra Optics Glasses for Enhanced Focus and Recovery

In recent months, the tennis world has witnessed a surge in the popularity of Ra Optics glasses among top players. From Andrey Rublev to Novak Djokovic and Elena Rybakina, these glasses with colorful lenses have become a ubiquitous sight on the ATP and WTA Tours.

Alexander Bublik, the No. 17 seed at the 2024 Mutua Madrid Open, has shed light on the origins of this trend. In an interview with Tennis Channel, Bublik revealed that he had been wearing orange-tinted lenses for sleep for three years prior to discovering Ra Optics.

"I tried these on and I really enjoyed it, because it helps you be more focused," Bublik explained. "It stops the blue light, light from the phone, so it gives you maybe 10 or 15 (energy) percent back."

Bublik was wearing a pair of gold-hued Clyde "Daylight" glasses, which filter out 95 percent of blue light from electronic devices. This helps reduce eye strain and fatigue, potentially enhancing recovery and performance.

The trend reportedly began with Rublev, who first wore his own colorful lenses during the Australian Open. Word of mouth quickly spread, and by Indian Wells and Miami, players from both tours were sporting the look.

Bublik admitted that he had initially mocked Sascha Zverev for wearing glasses indoors. However, after seeing Rublev's success with them, he decided to give them a try.

"I asked Andrey and he was much nicer to me," Bublik said. "He answered me, because I was not bothering him for one year, so then I said OK, let me try it."

Bublik believes that the glasses provide him with an extra edge in recovery, which is crucial for his upcoming match against former world No. 1 Daniil Medvedev. Despite his dislike for clay courts, Bublik has already achieved his best run in Madrid in years, reaching the fourth round for the first time in three years.
