With the Laver Cup taking place in its hometown headquarters of Chicago this weekend, Wilson is seeing red. To celebrate the occasion and its marquee participant, Wilson is releasing a limited edition Pro Staff RF97 Autograph with a vibrant, red matte finish which Roger Federer will use throughout the competition. 

The frame has the same exact specs as the all-black and black-and-white tuxedo versions of the RF97 Autograph that Federer has most recently been wielding. The clean design in Wilson’s trademark color features Federer’s signature etched in silver on the throat of the racquet.

For sale starting September 21, the first day of the event, the racquet retails for $299 and is available at and select tennis retailers worldwide. Federer fans and Pro Staff collectors need to act quickly, as supplies—I believe only 500 are in circulation—are indeed limited.
