Racket: Wilson Pro Staff RF97

Federer is playing with a racket that is available to the general public in the Wilson Pro Staff RF97. This will soon be updated to the Pro Staff line's 14th cosmetic in the Wilson Pro Staff v14. Federer played with the 90 square inch head pictured for the majority of his career, before switching to the more modern 97 square inch RF97 in 2014; many attribute this switch as a huge help in improving his backhand and record against Nadal. He used old-school power pads and string savers throughout his career.
