Djokovic won his third career Grand Slam tournament after Australian Open victories in 2008 and last January. But the Serb who changed to his new HEAD Speed weapon to start the season also claimed his 49th victory of the season against one defeat as he ended Nadal’s 20-match win streak at Wimbledon.
It is the best day of my life, the most special. Wimbledon is my favourite event…
“This is hard to describe with any words,” said the new champion who takes over the No. 1 ATP World Tour ranking from the Spaniard. “It is the best day of my life, the most special. Wimbledon is my favourite event,” the Serb said after his historic win, achieved with 27 winners and just a dozen unforced errors. “It’s always been my dream to win here.”
Nole is HEAD’s first ATP world number 1 tennis player since Andre Agassi, who last obtained the No.1 ranking with his HEAD Radical OS tennis rackets, way back in June 2003. Understandably HEAD’s advertising department is now going crazy with insane Youtube videos (see below) and their clever No.1VAK marketing campaign.
HEAD’s other top four player, Briton’s own Andy Murray who uses the HEAD Radical Pro tennis rackets, had another successful Wimbledon reaching the semi finals, losing to eventual runner-up; Babolat‘s Rafael Nadal.
Meanwhile Maria Sharapova also played a tremendous Wimbledon tournament with her brand-new YouTek IG Instinct tennis rackets and reached the final seven years after her first Wimbledon title.
Wimbledon 2011 also introduced the British public to Australian qualifier Bernard Tomic, who claimed a spot in the quarter-final with his HEAD Youtek Radical tennis rackets, before falling to eventual winner Novak Djokovic. Tomic also moved from position 158 to 71 (!) in the ATP World Tour Ranking, surpassing Yonex ambassador Leyton Hewitt as the new Australian no 1.
So overall, a pretty good Wimbledon 2011 for Head Tennis!
