Long-time Wilson Advisory Staff Member and the “Greatest of All Time” Men’s Singles player Roger Federer set a new Grand Slam record at this year’s Australian Open, becoming the only player with 20 Men’s Singles Champion Grand Slam victories.

To honor his record-breaking 20th Grand Slam title, Wilson Sporting Goods has created an exclusive 20th Grand Slam Platinum Edition Racket Package, complete with a special Pro Staff RF 97 Autograph racket painted in a metallic, glittering platinum-colored paint (the color platinum is widely used to the mark the achievement of 20th milestones). On the racket buyers will find symbols representing each of Roger Federer’s 20 Grand Slam titles adorning the inside of the racket’s hoop; subtle design nods to the number “20” incorporated throughout the design motif; and an illustrated version of Federer’s signature, which appears prominently on the throat of the racket.

Only 20 of these commemorative Grand Slam Platinum Edition Racket Packages have been created, each individually numbered (one through 20); all were autographed by the Swiss champion immediately following his championship win against Marin Cilic of Croatia. The price point: $20,000 per package.

Along with the limited edition platinum Pro Staff RF 97 Autograph racket, each package includes a Roger Federer-signed Australian Open Wilson tennis ball and a premium box to display this commemorative racket and ball. The Package also includes as a series of mini-posters documenting Federer’s 20 Grand Slams titles, a photo of Roger Federer holding the commemorative racket and the certificate of authenticity.

Ten of the Collector’s Edition Packages will be sold on rogerfederer.com with 100% of the proceeds going to the Roger Federer Foundation. Nine of the Collector’s Edition Packages will be sold on Wilson.com with 50% of the proceeds going to the Roger Federer Foundation and the other 50% going to Wilson’s philanthropic efforts to grow and build the game of tennis.
