The signature Roger Federer racket for ultimate control and precision. A New Generation of Pro Staff. Co-Designed by Roger Federer.
Colour: Matte Black Velvet / Tuxedo Black
In collaboration with Roger Federer, Wilson have reinvented the iconic Pro-Staff. Inspired in Switzerland, this new, state-of-the-art, design enables any tennis player to refine their game. The new Wilson Pro Staff RF97 Autograph is designed for players who look to attack relentlessly, offering you more power than ever before. The 340g unstrung weight and 97 square inch head give you a large sweetspot and headsize, while the Head-Light balance offers you the pure, classic feel that the Pro Staff line is renowned for, as well as unrivalled control.
Due to the 340g weight, using the new RF 97 Autograph gives you plenty of weight behind the ball, allowing you to hit the ball heavier and push your opponent further back while you attack. The stability of the new RF97 gives you excellent precision on your serves, rock solid volleys and fantastic touch, ensuring that you can also counter-punch and return serves with ease. Ultimately, these qualities make the new Wilson Pro Staff RF97 Autograph a truly sensational tennis racquet.
History of the Wilson Pro-Staff
Engineered in Chicago, the Wilson Pro-Staff line is one of the most legendary names in tennis. Used by some of the finest players in tennis history, the Pro Staff has long been known as Wilson's finest product. While the original Jack Kramer Autograph model is the first Pro Staff racket, the Pro Staff 85 was the first well-known graphite version, and was established as a legendary racquet by Pete Sampras, who used it throughout his entire career. Following Sampras, players such as Jimmy Connors, Jim Courier, Stefan Edberg, Chris Evert, Steffi Graf, Mary Pierce and Roger Federer have used Wilson Pro Staffs, making it the choice of champions.
Please note: Some grip sizes are not available for this racket, so we are offering a grip build up. Grip sizes can be built up to the next size by moulding a plastic layer (heatshrink) on top of the base grip (increases by 1 size). The original grip is then replaced
