Any small change to a racquet can throw off a player’s entire game and Djokovic had already been struggling with changes to his serve. The Serbian was unable to defend his Australian Open title, lending credit to some of the theories that his switch to a Head racquet was ill advised. As time went on however, the Novak Djokovic sponsor partnership with Head tennis racquets began to blossom . In what can only be called the year of Djokovic, 2011 saw three of it’s four majors fall into the young Serbian’s hands. The tennis Djokovic played this year was nothing short of amazing. If these results continue, the Djokovic Head relationship is bound to be a long and prosperous one. He has shown that he can dominate the competition with the support of a Head tennis racquet behind him.
Make sure to catch all the action when Djokovic plays in the year end Barclays ATP World Tour Finals in London. This will be the cap to the season and a good test to see his form going into 2012.
