Wilson has yet to confirm whether a new version (V14) of the PS RF97 Autograph will be released in 2022.
As Roger played his last tournament at the Laver Cup in September 2022, I wouldn’t be surprised if Wilson releases a new version (V14) to commemorate Fed’s career.
What are the Specs of the Wilson Pro Staff RF97 Autograph (Retail Version)?
Over his 20+ years on the ATP Tour, Federer has endorsed a number of different rackets but in reality, he has probably only used three different frames over the course of his career with Wilson only updating the paint job on the frame he played with so they could sell a new version of the retail version.
As you can see from the image below, Wilson has regularly updated the retail version of the Roger Federer Racket, even though it is likely that Roger did not change his specs as often during this time.
Federer started out on tour using the Wilson PS 85, which was also used by the great Pete Sampras.
His biggest win with the PS 85 was his famous win over Sampras at the 2001 Wimbledon Championships.
In 2003, he switched to the Wilson Pro Staff 90 so he could benefit from the larger head size.
With the PS 90, he would win his first grand slam singles title at the 2003 Wimbledon Championships and would go on to win 17 of his 20 grand slam titles with the PS 90.
Then in 2014, he switched to the first version of his current racket, the Wilson PS RF97 Autograph as he wanted a frame that would be better at dealing with the massive topspin that was becoming a big part of the modern game.
