    I'm sure someone has posted on this before, but I'm curious if anyone knows which racquet Djokovic is actually using, is it Head? thanks for the info! I have a bet with a friend that he is using a PJ, so hopefully someone can win me a coke with some info!

    You win! Novak is using a PJ of a HEAD Youtek Speed Midplus, but the actual racquet is different. I believe it's a Liquidmetal Radical but am unsure (think it's still a HEAD racquet though).

    Cheers,

    No, it's a custom one that Head did for him

    You can easily tell by any closer picture that he doesn't use a Ytk Speed Pro.

    Hey NoleDjoko, Novak does use a paint job of the Speed Pro MP. It's not uncommon you know! :)

    No. His racquet is way too thick to be the Speed Pro. Sorry. You lose. There is ABSOLUTELY no way.

    Not to mention the lack of painting of the tie-off holes. Even if it is the same mold, you're not getting the same stick.

    Because Head wants to sell racquets but he doesn't want to change racquets. Why else?

    He used Head before he used Wilson and then he switched back. Not sure what racquet it is, but it's not the Speed Pro. There's a ton of threads on this if you want to use the search function...

    I suggest you read up on a lot of of the older threads before trying to correct people with incorrect information. :)

    Posting up wholly inaccurate info on here will just get you flamed. Especially in the Pro's Gear section.

    the racket looks and sounds nothing like Liquidmetal, so it can't be LM radical. It is custom made Youtek racket. I don't think you can buy this spec from the public point of view. so forget about playing just like Novak........lol

    Maybe he used a lm when he wasnt that big, but now that hes the highest rank head player, Im sure he has a super custom racket.

    Hey, unless NoleDjoko is Djoko himself, case in point, prostock version of a supposed Head Speed MP 18x20.

    TWH site even says so too.

    it has been said so many times before, he plays a custom frame made from a custom mold. pretty much the same as when he was with wilson who bought the mold from head.. very flexy frame in the low 50´s.

    ...and the mold is based off of he Head LM Radical MP he played with. Seems simple enough to me.

    Nole does not play with a fracking Liquid Metal or the LM mold. His frame is a total custom job. Jezus christ!

    I said it ISdifferent but is based off the LM mold - there a differance between being based off of the mold and being from that mold. Calm down before you hurt yourself :roll:
