    Obviously he has heavily endorsed the k six one but do you think Fed will ever make his own brand like Boris Becker and vice versa.

    Would be pretty cool, but those stupid contract restrictions might get in the way.

    Doesn't he have a lifetime contract with Wilson or something? That would presumably make it impossible.

    Wilson actually had Rog heavily involved in the making of the K90.

    I think player branded racquets are a bit cheesy. I would never buy one of Boris Becker's racquets, for instance.

    Only an egomaniac like Sampras would do something like that. :)

    In a way, Wilson is his brand. Everything they do revolves around him and what he has to say. Maybe one day the racquet will be known as the Fed Six One. By having Wilson do it all, he does not have to spend any of his own money which is a nice bonus.

    No, and even more I hope not. I'd like to see him continuing to work with Wilson like Sampras has, and am looking forward to the 2019 Fed Z-90 model.
