Contract with Head expires at the end of the year!
 
What is the next step or move for Novak.To stay with them, or return to Wilson?:)

ARON 10-26-2012 04:11 PM

Whatever pays more.

SoBad 10-26-2012 04:21 PM

Novak needs to try the free demo program and try out four different frames to see which one works for him.

Yonex. He's already gone the asian route with apparel.

I hope not, otherwise He is going to be unbeatable :) .

I want to see Fed winning, maybe Fed should pick up a 89 Tour :twisted:

Being serious now, I don't think Yonex would pay him as much as he may get from head, plus he is already used to the racquet, has been winning a lot, may get paid even more from head next contract.

Gamma. Big Bubba. Razr.

Not sure how none of these guys can manage to sign him for more than a couple of years. I mean.. late 2008 the guy had already won a slam and went on to win the WTF.. why wouldn't Head (or Wilson, for that matter) sign him for like 5 years and make use of his name?

the best is yet to come....

If you "knew" you were going to get better, a short term deal allows you to hit "free agency" quicker. Aggressive thinking on Nole's advisers part.

in this case, being aggressive paid off. one could tell djokovic had a lot of upside early in his career, but he plateaued when he first made the switch, albeit for various reasons, and that made a lot of things look a lot more uncertain. his stock certainly fell for a while. but it all worked itself out.

novak going to babolat

Federerkblade 10-27-2012 03:03 PM

hes gonna stay with head as they will pay big bucks

RF20Lennon 10-27-2012 03:05 PM

HEAD made everything work for him not counting his terrible 2009 year when he made the change but its all working. I doubt hes going to switch

Sounds about right.

ductrung3993 10-28-2012 04:37 AM

Gamma it is.

Babolast 10-28-2012 07:03 AM

Would be interesting if Novak signs with Babolat and endorses the Pure Drive.

Overheadsmash 10-28-2012 07:04 AM

I think he needs to play one of those 137 square inch Weed racquts that the 90 year old guys play. Gamma RAZR Bubba works too.

Srsly, I'm sure Head has a great offer all teed up and ready to go. Novak is still young and has a while to play still.

Roddickulous 10-28-2012 08:15 AM

Babolat Pure Storm Tour

NLBwell 10-28-2012 09:08 AM

I would think Head would pony up a ton of money to keep him.

3fees 10-28-2012 09:29 AM

I think he'll stay with Head unless some other racquet maker makes a racquet thats better for his game than Head does.

You Can't Be Serious 10-28-2012 02:08 PM

Yonex would trade two of its top chicks plus a ton of money for novak if he becomes a blonde.
