Roger Federer has announced the launch of the new Wilson ProStaff V14 racket. Federer, a former 20-time Grand Slam champion, has been Wilson’s brand ambassador since 1998. Together, Federer and Wilson created many beautiful memories.
Now, Federer is guaranteeing that Wilson’s new ProStaff V14 racket won’t disappoint. “Wilson has a new ProStaff coming out the V14 and for the first time in quite some time now I won’t be the one playing or debuting it on the tour which is obviously unfortunate.
But you’ll see it in the hands of really some great other players from both the ATP and WTA tour in 2023 and beyond. The precision is still at the absolute top of the game and I know you’ll get as much joy out of the new version as with all the ProStaffs I played to date really,” Federer said in a video posted on Wilson’s Instagram account.
Federer enjoying his retirement days
Since ending his astonishing career in late September, Federer hasn’t made appearances on the Tour.
In October, the Basel organizers offered Federer to organize a special farewell but the former 20-time Grand Slam declined. Then, it was reported that Tennis Australia really wanted to have Federer as a special guest at this year’s tournament.
Once again, Federer politely declined. Federer is taking his time after retiring as it seems that he is still not ready to come to tournaments as a former player and a special player. When Federer visited Wimbledon last year regarding the Centre Court’s 100th anniversary, he was visibly emotional.
This year, Federer could return to Wimbledon but in a completely new role. For the past several weeks, it has been speculated that Federer could be a part of BBC’s commentary team for 2023 Wimbledon. At Wimbledon, Federer is a record eight-time champion and an absolute icon. It remains to be seen if Federer will indeed work on TV during this year’s Wimbledon.
