Novak Djokovic captured his first title at the All England Lawn Tennis Club as he swung his YouTek IG Speed MP to perfection in a thrilling 6-4, 6-1, 1-6, 6-3 defeat of Rafael Nadal. Fellow HEAD player Maria Sharapova also played a tremendous tournament with her brand-new YouTek IG Instinct and reached the final seven years after her first Wimbledon title.

Novak Djokovic wins Wimbledon, claims ATP World No. 1 Ranking

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.

“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.”

The HEAD player was especially pleased about his performance against Nadal, whom he has now defeated in five 2011 finals. “When you’re playing against the best in the world, you have to be on your best game. He’s won two of the last three Wimbledon tournaments and is always winning big matches in the Grand Slams. This was probably my best-ever match on grass.” The modest Djokovic jokingly called his double triumph – tournament and ranking – “a couple of good days at the office.”

To celebrate Novak’s rise to the top of the ATP world tour ranking, HEAD Tennis lets all of his fans congratulate Novak via a special Facebook application on www.facebook.com/headtennis, and the NO.1VAK film on www.youtube.com/headtennis is a tribute to his incredible performance this season.

‘We congratulate Novak for his winning streak in 2011 with his new weapon of choice  i.e. his racquet, YouTek IG Speed MP and look forward to many more such performances in the year ahead’ said Neeraj Aggarwal, Director, Delux Sports International, Exclusive distributors for HEAD in India.
