Roger Federer's legendary new Pro Staff RF97.
Colour: Matte Black Velvet / White
The new Pro Staff RF97 Autograph has a stunning tuxedo-look finish and is equipped with everything you’ll need to refine your game. The vintage design is bold enough to demand attention on and off the court, yet simplistic enough to make your performance the centre of attention.
Designed by the 20 Grand Slam winner himself, the new RF97 has been created to inspire players to even higher levels of performance. The new Pro Staff gives you the extra edge you need against your opponents, the confidence that you have a racket that will be able to take your gameplan and execute it perfectly. 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.
Designed for passionate players that leave everything on the court, the new Pro Staff lets you find your rhythm early on in the game, letting you dictate every move, fine-tune your performance in-game and re-invent yourself as you play, creating a performance that means your shots are smooth, sharp and full of power.
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.
Play Your Heart Out.
If you want the tennis world to listen up, then make noise when it’s time to play by putting your whole heart into it. It’s how you go from good...to great...to rock-star status. And it doesn’t hurt to be armed with the most classic of instruments: Roger’s legendary new Pro Staff RF97.
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.
