World No. 1 Novak Djokovic has enthralled fans over all these years by treating them to a world-class display of tennis. The Serbian superstar has been the most successful player in the men’s Tour since the past decade. He managed to create an identity for himself with the likes of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal around.

Novak has won 17 Grand Slam titles in all. His Majors comprise eight titles at the Australian Open, five titles at Wimbledon, followed by three at the US Open, and one at the French Open. The manner in which he covers the tennis court is one of his biggest strengths.

Novak Djokovic: Received this special racquet for 2021

Recently, the Serb was given a new tennis racquet for the upcoming season. As he received his new racquet, he said, “I’ve just received this special racquet for 2021. I want to thank HEAD for shipping this HEAD speed beauty. Hopefully, it can serve me well at the start of the season at the Australian hard courts but also everything that’s coming after Australia.”

Novak has been using racquets provided by HEAD, and his association with the company is well over 10 years. When he began his career, he used racquets provided by the same company. In 2005, he shifted to Wilson for a brief period before coming back to HEAD in the 2009 season. 

The eight-time Australian Open champion is currently in Adelaide in Australia. He will be headlining the ‘A Day at the Drive’ exhibition event. After that, he will travel to Melbourne, where he will represent Serbia at the ATP Cup. He helped his nation lift the title in its inaugural edition last year.
