After months of waiting, Roger Federer’s racquet finally got a name and full product marketing this week, Wilson announced. Federer will debut the branded “RF 97″ this week in Canada. The racquet will be available for purchase in stores later this month.
Headsize: 97 sq. in

After play-testing the larger frame last summer, Federer made the switch official at the start of the year.
