Novak Extends Unbeaten Run To 39 With His HEAD IG Speed

Novak Djokovic showing off his Head YouTek IG Speed Pro tennis racket - his weapon of choice for his unbeaten run in 2011

Novak Djokovic has extended his unbeaten run to 39 with victory over Rafael Nadal in the final of the Rome Masters. Djokovic, who has not been beaten since November 2010, has amazingly already qualified for the ATP World Tour Finals to be held at the O2 Arena in London.

Head Youtek IG Speed Pro

This amazing unbelievable achievement also coincides with Djokovic switching his tennis racket to the Head YouTek IG Speed Pro. The IG Speed Pro is an updated version of his older white YouTek Speed Pro, which offers a staggering amount of control, thanks largely to its thin beam (18mm), and head light swing weight.

I don’t think anyone would suggest that his win steak is all down to a change of tennis racket, however it is worth noting when he initially switched from his old Wilson to the Head at the end of 2007, he did surfer an initial slump in form. Maybe HEAD have it spot on with the new IG Speed Pro.

Breaking Records

If Djokovic continues his success at Roland Garros, he will be on course for breaking John McEnroe’s 42 match win streak set in 1984, and Guillermo Vilas’ win steak of 44 matches which was set in 1977.

Key to Success?

I was well chuffed that I picked Djokovic at 16/1 at the start of the Australian Open. However I did not expect to see him go on a 39 win streak, and beat Nadal… on clay… twice! In the past, it seemed too easy for Djokovic to just retire if things on court wasn’t going his way, however now he is playing with a new-found confidence and determination, which is allowing him to really dominate the court!

What do think is behind Djokovic's 39 win streak!?
