    As you know, he did come from Head to Wilson.
    I know His Racket was LM Radical former days.

    Since in Wilson,
    Does he use n-Blade 98 or k-Blade 98(k-blade tour pj)?

    Ask you for help.

    People still believe he uses some kind of racquet that Wilson made similar to his old Head racquet. There are some threads about it, you can do a search.

    i almost couldve gotten djokovic's racquet if i was sitting about 20 metres to the right in the final tonight :( he threw 2 of his racquets up into the stands after he won... some french guy ended up getting one.

    yehh it was pretty good. there was a lot of booing, i dont really know what it was all about. there was this one bit, where djokovic was doing his incessant ball bouncing, and some idiot from the crowd yelled out "just serve the f***ing ball!" to which djokovic stopped and looked and the rest of the crowd began to boo the guy. i dunno what else there was booing about...

    If Djoker really isn't using the k-blade then I'm surprised that he tossed two into the crowd. I mean people will then know he's not really what Wilson says he is.

    Id be surprised if he knows his name by now. I think they will have to keep a close eye on him in order to prevent drowning or whatever else can happen to a guy winning his fist slam and drinking a ton of crystal. ;) On the lighter note, I think Novak could not give a rats arse about the throwing racquets in the crowd ..

    They say wilson manufactured his old Pro tour 280 and paint it to look like the latest models.

    Why didn't he keep the racquet? I mean it is the racquet he used to win his first grand slam title.

    No he doesn't! They are just painted similarly. Tsonga's racket has the "perimeter weighting system" @ 3 and 9, it's some kind of older Pro Staff.
    Djokovic's racket is not even close, it doesn't have PWS and it's not even close to whatever rackets wilson sells to the consumers. It was never a "retail" racket, and will never be.

    Well while looking the finals, coach of Serbian Davis cup team who was co-commentator said that Wilson created a new line for Djokovic and interestingly, he pointed out that Tsonga chose to use exactly the same racquet. Now being in the world of tennis, I assume he is much more informed thn the two of us, being close to all of Serb tennis players. I am not sure how well is he informed about Tsonga but I just wanted to give you insight from where did I get the information - and that I did not just base it on pics or talking from my head, I heard it from a guy I think knows a lot about that. on the other hand - he may not be right you know, we all make mistakes.

    Where does your info come from ?

    Just go to getty images and look at the pictures. That will be enough to prove that those two rackets are just PAINTED the same. Once you realize that Wilson paints two different models the same and declares player X and Y (in this case Tsonga and Djoko) are using one particular racket ... maybe you'll also realize that what players ENDORSE isn't necessarily what they actually use. No professional player could keep his performance up if he would change rackets every 1 or 2 years (that's how long it takes for the racket manufacturers to come up with new so called technology).
    The coach of the serbian Davis Cup team can't say that wilson doesn't actually sell the racket that Djokovic uses on TV. Nobody does it because they would **** off the racket manufacturers. Almost everybody that appears on TV states that player X uses the racket that he's endorcing...the racket that the sponsor (manufacturer) is saying that he uses.

    Maybe a valid point. I will analyse the pics and check if the racquets are the same. Facts are - Novaks racquet is surely not on sale anywhere and its created for him especially, by his personal and coaching team requests. No one argued that.

    I just asked are the racquets same ( NoJoke's vs JWT's ), you said they are not, Ill check the pics.

    Follow the link in this post http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showpost.php?p=1979292&postcount=8 for a clear picture of Tsonga's racket. You can see that he has a "rounded" beam, and the thicker frame on the two sides of the head (called Perimeter Weighting system by Wilson).
    There are plenty of pictures of Djokovic's racket on Getty...if you find a close up you will see that his racket has a flatter beam (rectangular rather than round) and NO PWS.

    Edit. By the way...this thread belongs in a different section of the board.

    I have djoko's racquet. I dont need to seek for it, and btw you are right. Its the wrong section but the thread is over, they are different by the looks of things, from the pic.

    Ps - I dont have a stock racquet ;) One of the advantages of being in a small country.
