Since entering the tour in 1998, Roger Federer has used many racquets. Starting with the tiny 85 sq. in. Pro Staff Original 6.0 in 1998, then moving to a 90 sq. in. Hyper Pro Staff 6.0, and finally to a 97 sq. in. Pro Staff RF 97 Autograph.
There were many limited edition racquets along the way. Occasionally, when he was testing out racquets, he used paint jobs. But one thing that stayed a constant for more than twenty years – a Wilson racquet.
