Tennis Warehouse apparently playtested it today.

Please dont switch company Novak >_<....
i wonder what does TWE means ..
Noticed this mysterious HEAD racket, next to Novak Djokovic´s bag? Maybe you can get a glimpse during the changeovers.
Or check out this pictures. We actually playtested it today in London. LIKE to find out more and stay tuned..... "

Is novak switching to another company or HEAD is switching novak to a Pro version? 16x19?

AlexDK09 11-07-2012 06:09 AM

TWE is Tennis Warehouse English, the european department of TW!

When does Djokovic ends contract with HEAD?

Federerkblade 11-07-2012 06:32 AM

if he was ending comtract i dont think he would be putting his raquet on bag. its clear to me he is extending contract.

I think is Babolat PD 2012.

AverageJoe 11-07-2012 07:45 AM

My guess, its nothing more than a PR stunt to peak interest in a new pj

Interesting that TWE on facebook says "Noticed this mysterious HEAD racket, next to Novak Djokovic´s bag?"

They specifically said "HEAD" racket, and they've play tested it. And I thought I saw a HEAD stencil on the strings during the change over. But I noticed it didn't have the same grip/overgrip on it, so I really think that he wasn't using it, but placed it there to get attention. The black racket was placed next to one of the current rackets, and neither one looked like it was touched for the whole match.

Maybe he's gonna switch to babolat PD as Andy Rod's replacement

niktub 11-07-2012 01:37 PM

Don't believe the hype :???:

anhuynh16 11-07-2012 02:53 PM

It's the "new" Speed obviously..

ramos77 11-07-2012 04:56 PM

the marketing ploy has worked it seems

JDMasFCK 11-07-2012 06:45 PM

Watched the replay of the match and there clearly is a head symbol stenciled into the racket so the racket is from Head... my guess would be the new speed

tennisstar1 11-07-2012 10:55 PM

This is infact a publicity stunt. I know for a fact that head wanted him to use this to create hype for the new speed coming out in january! He is not testing any other brands racquets.

Orion3 11-07-2012 11:27 PM

Safe to assume then that it's his existing frame - blacked out and ready for the new PJ.

When the new frame is released, people will go out and buy it because it LOOKS like the one he plays with! Regardless that the shape and make up from his personal frame is entirely different.

I've become such a cynic!

He is subliminally telling Head, "look you need to sign me for big money or I'm going to switch to this black Babolat racquet sitting here on my bag".
