As the sport of tennis evolves, so does the Pro Staff, which has been developed over 3 years by Wilson Labs, working closely with Roger Federer to refine every aspect of the racket for the next generation of tennis. Designed to be the ultimate ‘Attacker’ racket, the new Wilson Pro Staff line is suited for a variety of attack-style players, from avid players to youth striving to improve their game.
Made to Roger’s exact specifications, the Pro Staff RF 97 Autograph delivers more power, a larger headsize, and a bigger sweetspot, while retaining its pure, classic feel.
The Wilson Pro Staff RF 97A is compatible with the new Sony Smart Tennis Sensor, which records accurate shot data alongside real-time video.
Having been seen playing with a mysterious black racket for months, the new Pro Staff is the culmination of one of the longest and most public play tests in history of tennis and finally dispels the speculation over which racket Roger is using. At least 25 different prototypes travelled back and forth between Wilson and Roger before settling on the final specifications.
Spanning 31 years and steeped in history and tradition, the Pro Staff has played an important part in over 200 Grand Slam victories. Of these, Roger Federer has accounted for 17, in addition to 79 ATP career singles titles, and winning a Gold medal for doubles in Beijing 2008 and a Silver medal at the London 2012 Olympics.
The RF 97 Autograph is the first autograph racket from Wilson in over 30 years. The last was the Jack Kramer Autograph racket, which is the best-selling tennis racket in history.
Please note, the Wilson Pro Staff RF 97 Autograph comes unstrung and without a protective head cover.

Measuring Your Grip Size
Choosing the right grip size is a vital part of playing tennis. The right grip size will make your racket feel natural and comfortable.
Use a ruler and measure (in inches) from the crease fold in your hand, to the top of your ring finger. Please see table below:
Note: It is always better to go for a smaller grip size, as you can easily increase your grip size with over grips.
