Well, so Djokovic is this year’s Wimbledon winner and as of today, he’s also the world’s number one – taking Nadal’s crown in one big swoop.
Novak Djokovic’s has been pretty much unstoppable this year, winning 47 matches and only losing one. All of this started when our partner brand HEAD, convinced Novak to play tennis on the wings of an old Antonov II bi-plane for their YouTek IG SPEED Pro racquet marketing campaign. The racket, which incorporates D3O in its throat, has been Novak’s choice of weapon ever since, granting him the incredible winning record.

The D3O in the YouTek IG Speed racket range is able to adapt to the player’s need in a given situation. On aggressive shots, the D3O molecules lock together and dramatically increase the stiffness of the whole racquet frame to provide the maximum power. On slice or drop shots, the molecules absorb the impact to provide a softer touch for better feel. This means the player’s passing shots are even harder and drop shots more precise.
Djokovic isn’t the only one benefiting from the HEAD’s YouTek rackets. The British number one, Andy Murray, plays with YouTek Radical; whilst the Wimbledon finalist, Maria Sharapova, uses YouTek IG Instinct (only just released to the public)
