ProStaff RF97 Autograph — a female perspective

Last Friday, the highly anticipated Wilson Pro Staff RF97 Autograph launched around the world for pre-sale! There has been chatter around this racquet for months, and finally, it is here (or at least available for pre-order)! With specs that point to a strung weight of almost 13 ounces (with an overgrip and dampener) and a hefty swingweight, some players out there might be wondering if they have what it takes to swing this stick. But I’m here to tell you, it really does make you betterer!

I’m completely obsessed with this “bubblegum” color of one of my favorite shoes, the Asics Gel Solution Speed 2. This is my current go-to show to throw on and hit the court or gym running…literally (I often wear these to get my warm-up mile run in pre-workout/pre-hit).

Color the Court!These shoes are lightweight, speedy and easy to wear anywhere. I love them on the court because of the great fit and how fast I feel, also, they have a good amount of stability and durability. I like them in the gym for the exact same reasons — I find stability when lifting in them, but also enjoy them because they are easy to wear for box jumps and burpees — they are the perfect shoes for my needs.
