Novak Djokovic’s racket of choice is the Head Youtek IG Speed MP 18×20. The string bed has a particularly tight pattern which provides a heavy bite for his type of play. Djokovic is an intense player who is known not only for the power of his game but his outgoing personality. He is an all court player with a particular fondness for baseline play, and he enjoys the game for its fun as much for the championships he has won.
The Youtek technology used in the frame and strings of the IG Speed MP 18×20 is perfect for a stronger player with a powerful stroke. Players who use the whole court for their game, with particular attention to baseline play will benefit from the technology that reacts to the player’s full swing so that the motion is fast, fluid, and powerful yet allows finessing the ball to specific parts of the opponent’s court. So if a player wants to drive the ball to the back line or gently lob it over the net he or she will have that kind of control with the Youtek player sensitive feature.
Here’s a little video review from Midwest Sports
Head Company has been around since the 1950s when Howard Head started in in Baltimore, Maryland. Originally the company was intended to make better skies, but in 1960, Mr. Head found the game of tennis to be interesting enough to get involved in the design and manufacture of tennis rackets. His company is the first to introduce aluminum frames. The first one was used in the 1969 US Open.
Over decades of research and development within the company that currently is headquartered in Austria, Head Rackets have improved the quality of the game and improved the playing experience for athletes. In fact, in 1997 they introduced the first titanium and graphite rackets that provide for very strong frames that are light-weight for excellent speed and response for players.
Head rackets have long been popular among ATP athletes who appreciate the strong construction of the frame and the tight pattern of the strings for powerful play. One of the first sponsors brought into the Head family was Arthur Ashe who was the first black man to win Wimbledon in 1975. Another ATP athlete who favors Head Rackets is Andre’ Agassi who help get more people into the game that virtually any other player.
