    it's a Falcon. When Djokovic was with adidas, the falcon was his symbol on his shirts and shoes. So Head decided to roll with it for his dampeners. Hope that helps

    Is it a Falcon or Eagle......the two headed Eagle is one of the major symbols of Serbia (similar to Russia's two headed black Eagle - Gula).

    Black Bird on the dampener is a Raven. Answers the question, will Fed ever win another slam? Nevermore

    It's probably based on a Byzantine double-headed eagle, handed down through Orthodox religious traditions, with one of its heads cut off.

    ... although it was advertised as a falcon, I think, and it could well be such but the Orthodox quotation, however indirect, is there.
