Wielding the Pro Staff is as much about attitude as it is about ability. It’s not talent that makes you a worthy bearer of Federer’s favourite racket, it’s the relentless desire to improve: to be as good as you can possibly be. The new Pro Staff RF97 Autograph embodies that sentiment with its unique all-black colour scheme – a sleek look rarely seen outside prototype testing sessions. There’s no doubt this is the real thing however, with the racket’s design overseen by Roger every step of the way. Think you’ve got what it takes to surpass one of the greatest ever? Picking up a Pro Staff could be the start of your rise to stardom.
The Pro Staff RF97 Autograph sits on the heavier end of the spectrum, weighing in at 340 grams unstrung. For that reason it’s best suited to players that already possess a confident swing, and are able to generate enough speed to get the most out of the racket’s undeniably emphatic plow-through. The racket’s headlight balance gives access to power when swung quickly, while Wilson’s reliable braided graphite construction offers stability for precise baseline shots and controlled block volleys.

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.
