ATP world’s No.1 is heading into 2013 season with new HEAD SPEED racquet.

Novak’s brand-new weapon is the top model of the redesigned YouTek SPEED tour racquet series from HEAD, which introduces a revolutionary technology to modern racquet construction: HEAD Graphene.

Graphene is a unique material consisting of a single two-dimensional layer of carbon atoms with exceptional properties. It’s extremely lightweight, but has a breaking strength 200 times greater than steel. The integration of Graphene™ in the racquet shaft allowed HEAD engineers to reduce weight in the middle part of the tennis racquet and shift it to functionally more relevant areas in the grip and the head instead.

This unique construction with Graphene technology allows for the first time an optimized redistribution of weight in HEAD racquets: more weight in the grip makes the racquet more manoeuvrable and easier to swing; more weight in the racquet head enables even more powerful shots – and will give Djokovic’s opponents a really hard time.

Now entering into its fifth generation, the Babolat AeroPro Drive has been the racquet of choice for top players like Rafael Nadal and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

With an increased focus on technology, the Aeropro Drive includes:
Aero Modular Technology — an aerodynamic shape and modular frame that optimizes the penetration of the racquet through the air for more power and spin.
Woofer — a system allowing the frame and strings to interact for more feel and accuracy when hitting the ball.
GT Technology — a graphite and tungsten composition allowing for reduced torque on impact and optimized precision.

Andy Murray's 6-2, 6-1, 6-3 #lumix #lx7 /cc @panasonicusa

The last Grand Slam of the 2012 tennis season runs through September 9. During the first week, match play pretty much runs true to the rankings, the top seeds usually advance to the second week without having to play that many five set matches. One tremendous advantage for the men players is the fact that the top seeds have developed all-round tennis skills. Today, players rely on the power of the racket head speed. Racket head speed is developed early in a player’s career, but precision ball placement depends upon the racket.

Novak Djokovic

Novak Djokovic, the defending US Open champion uses the HEAD YouTek IG Speed Midplus. Of course, Novak Djokovic is no overnight sensation, he spent years performing grueling training, while listening to criticism about faking injuries, now his tennis skills have legitimized him on the court, this has silenced his critics. His choice of the HEAD YouTek IG Speed Midplus has helped him generate more power on his shots. The tennis racket has a slightly oversized head, which allows him to hit high-speed first serves as uncontested aces, and when he does need a second serve, the rallies are usually short because he clips the line for clean shot winners.

Roger Federer

Roger Federer is looking to complete a tremendous summer with a win at the US Open. With his Wimbledon victory, he cemented his status as one of the greatest tennis players of all time. The racket of choice for Roger is the Wilson Pro Staff Six.One. The Wilson Pro Staff Six.One has helped him to regain the Number One ranking. When he was losing, he lost confidence in his racket. When he changed rackets, he started winning again. The unique features of the racket include the Amplifeel handle, small racket head size, and a patented open string pattern.

Andy Murray

Of course, no conversation about the best men’s tennis players in the world would be complete without mentioning Andy Murray. Every spectator in the stadium could clearly see how disappointed he was to be runner-up at Wimbledon. He felt like the one who had let down a nation, so when he was presented with the opportunity to redeem himself at the Olympics, again on his native soil, he didn’t let up until he was atop the winner’s podium. Murray used the HEAD YouTek IG Radical Pro to avenge the lost he suffered at Wimbledon. He downed Roger Federer while using one of the best tennis rackets on the market today. The HEAD YouTek IG Radical Pro has a retooled head size with proprietary “Innegra technology.” The racket is built for high performance, this proved to be the perfect accompaniment for Andy Murray’s game.
