Unstrung, the racket is the centre piece of the Wilson Pro Staff 97 Autograph VIP Kit Tour Racket.
The re-designed Wilson Pro Staff RF97 has a slightly wider, more angular beam, giving it a decidedly more powerful delivery than most traditional racquets.
Co-designed by Roger Federer, the Pro Staff delivers the pure, classic feel that players have come to love but with an all-new design. With its meticulous detail and bold beauty, the new Pro Staff introduces a whole new dimension of engineered paint finishes and textures with matte black velvet finish and chrome touches, the laser engraving gives a perfect touch.
Thanks to its headlight balance (9 points!), the RF 97 feels surprisingly fast - a feature that will give topspin players the kind of whippy and explosive acceleration that makes for big spin.

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.
