Default Roger Federer Confirms New Racquet, He’s Gone From 90 To A 98 Head Size NEW ERA??

Finally it seems that the GOAT has decided it was time for change. A big one in fact. Going from a 90" to a 98".
What you guys think???
Will it be a new era or it will not have any effect on his decline?

To 98? That's a big change...but if there's one player that can manage it, it's Roger Federer.

Hopefully again complete domination/demolition over the field for the next four years or so...

Shocking.

However, it is possible it may backfire.

Sampras after losing to Bastl messed around with a number of racquets before going back to the Pro Staff 85 and winning the USO

We will see how these 2 weeks go, he may end up going back to the 90 if the 98 isn't a good fit.

That's the link for those who are curious. From pictures, it looks like a blade 98 with 16X19 string pattern

I wouldn't have thought it will make a huge difference but there might be a placebo effect, if it gives him confidence then that's good for the tour. Not that I would suggest confidence is the main problem.
