New racquet for Federer – all black

by Jonas Eriksson

The new design for the Wilson Roger Federer Autograph is revealed and it’s all black everything! Apparently Federer was involved in the design process himself and wanted something classy and timeless that moves away from the “busy” designs of the ATP tour. Personally I think they’ve succeded in crafting something really appealing visually (it’s also a great racquet). I’m not moving away from my customized Prince Textreme Tour 95 but I’m tempted to pick up the RF97A one more time just because of the sleek design.

I reviewed the Roger Federer Autograph before and was pleased with it, but it ended up hurting my wrist in the end as it’s a bit on the heavy side for me personally. But with the right string the RF97A is a great stick if you have the strength and footwork to wield it and now that it looks even better, why not check it out?
