Wilson has yet to confirm whether a new version of the Pro Staff RF97 Autograph will be released in 2022.
As Roger is likely to return to the tour for the 2022 grass court season, I wouldn’t be surprised if Wilson releases a new version (V14) to coincide with this.

Roger Federer Racket History
Over his 20+ years on the ATP Tour, Roger Federer has endorsed a number of different rackets but in reality, he has probably only used 3 different rackets over the course of his career with Wilson only updating the paint job on his racket 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 over the years, even though it is likely that Roger’s actual Racket did not change as often as this.
Timeline of Roger Federer’s Actual Racket
|Wilson Pro Staff 85||1998||2002|
|Wilson Pro Staff 90||2003||2013|
|Wilson Pro Staff RF97 Autograph||2014||Date|
Roger started out on tour using the Wilson Pro Staff 85, which was the same racket used by the great Pete Sampras.
His biggest win with this racket was in the famous win he had over his hero 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 Pro Staff 90, he would go on to win 17 of his 20 grand slam titles using this racket.
Then in 2014, he switched to the first version of his current racket, the Wilson Pro Staff RF97 Autograph as he wanted a racket that would be better at dealing with the massive topspin that was becoming more and more a part of the modern game.
