Exclusive “Historic Limited Edition” Pro Staff RF97 Roger Federer Autograph Racket

Roger FedererI just received the following from Wilson Tennis and thought I’d pass it along in case one or two of you happen to be Roger Federer fans!

Tennis history has been made again. Wilson Advisory Staff Member Roger Federer set two new Grand Slam records at this year’s Wimbledon Championships. As the only player to achieve eight Wimbledon Gentlemen’s Singles titles and 19 Men’s Singles Champion Grand Slam victories, Roger Federer continues to rewrite the tennis record-books and excite players and fans on the 2017 ATP World Tour.

To celebrate Roger Federer’s incredible achievements, Wilson Sporting Goods has created an exclusive “Historic Limited Edition” Pro Staff RF97 Autograph racket. Only eight of these commemorative rackets have been created, each individually numbered (one through eight) and authenticated by Roger Federer following his championship win today.

Each commemorative racket features the following elements:

  • A pure white matte paint with a gloss finish on the inside of the racket hoop and throat, which highlights the details surrounding this remarkable accomplishment.
  • A specially designed “8” logo featuring an image of Roger Federer’s face.
  • Roger Federer’s signature in silver.
  • Matching white and silver grommet medallions, as well as a white and sliver “W” butt cap.

The eight “Historic Limited Edition” rackets were autographed by Roger Federer after his Wimbledon Gentlemen’s Singles Championship win. They will be offered on www.rogerfederer.com.  One hundred percent of the proceeds from the sale of the rackets will go to the Roger Federer Foundation.

The Other Side of the Mic

Last night, I was a guest of Rick Limpert’s The Tech of Sports show on NetCastStudio, alongside fellow tennis parent Martyn Collins.  We discussed Wimbledon’s Wacky Wednesday as well as US women making strides on the pro tour, USTA changes, college recruiting changes, and what we can do better for our American players.  You can watch the broadcast below. 

I’m not often on the receiving end of interview questions, so this was a new and fun experience for me.  Hope you enjoy watching as much as I enjoyed Skyping!
