Roger Federer followed up his Hamburg presser yesterday with a conference call today during which the 31-year-old Swiss confirmed that he has changed tennis racquets.
Via Google translation, Federer said: Yes, I have a new racquet. It features a larger clubhead. So far I’ve played with a 90, now I get to a 98th order. I think 90% of the players on the ATP Tour have club head sizes between 95 and 100 Wimbledon since we have now tested this, and so far it’s going great. I can easily develop with the new racquet power. The racquet change is in my opinion one of the largest for a tennis player.
The exact model of racquet is not known but his sponsor Wilson will certainly have a press release out soon announcing the details of the switch.
Federer will officially debut the new larger black frame against German Daniel Brands tomorrow in the second round.
