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...

If only he'd been less stubborn earlier on in his career

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.
