Roger’s new racquet

Q: I know you have your racquet coming up for the public to buy. How much is that version different from the one you use? How much input have you had in sort of the mainstream version. I know you did a lot of tinkering with the one you used.

Federer: Yeah, basically it’s a year ago where I started the racquet testing after Wimbledon. Anyway, it’s a long process. But actually, it all went pretty quickly because I did not use it again here actually for this tournament. Right before I switched my mind, I switched and I said, Okay, I’ll play the year normally.
After all the back issues I had I needed to first figure out what’s going on with my game and my back. So I really lost a few months there.
So the change was swift. I’m happy now that you can buy it. It’s the one I’m playing with. They are going to make it in three different versions. The one exactly I’m playing with, and then I think two lighter versions of it for younger people or weaker people, you know, who can carry such a heavy racquet.
Not that mine is crazy, but it’s good to have the choice.  I’m very excited, because I have been playing pretty much with the same racquet since 2002 with some little adjustments here and there, but never to the extreme of changing the size of the racquet the way it is now.
So this is a major change for me, and I’m happy I have made the switch. I’m happy with the way I’m playing.

Q:  Do you think the racquet is more important or strings, tension?

Federer: I mean, everything is on the racquet. Strings I use, what tension I use, the weight of the racquet it is, all the information is on the racquet.
So when you go buy it, it’s the one I’m playing with, which was the most important thing for Wilson, myself. That racquet does exist, of course.
