HEAD to be Berdych’s Shoe of Choice

HEAD_RGB_Walking_TomasBerdych-009ATP’s number 6 player in the world, Tomas Berdych, will now be playing in HEAD tennis shoes starting next week at the BNP Paribas Masters in Paris.

“The new HEAD Sprint Pro is among the best in the game and I am very happy with the outcome of the shoe. I am already playing with HEAD racquets and have always felt very much at home with the company, so wearing HEAD footwear is a natural choice for me as I know I can rely on the product.” – Tomas Berdych

Our playtesters have just started playtesting these shoes and the initial feedback is great! These shoes come in a lightweight, yet durable package while combining speed with stability. Featuring the HEAD Trinergy technology, this sharp looking shoe is designed to absorb energy on impact and transfer it from the heel to the forefoot, and then release that energy to maximize the upward motion and energy into your next step.

These shoes are great for aggressive movers who don’t want to sacrifice any style or performance! Keep an eye out for these at Tennis Warehouse in January 2014!

Play with heart,

His apparel: Andy is keeping his look sharp and simple on the court during the Open by wearing the adidas Barricade line. The Adipower Barricade Crew has a two-piece crew neck with contrast inserts, mesh along the upper back for increased ventilation and colorblocking with the Band of Power across the chest. This crew does a great job of keeping Murray cool despite the NYC summer sun and humidity. The Fall Barricade Woven Short in the 9.5″ length keeps this look simple and focuses on ventilation with the added mesh panels. To keep the sweat off his face and away from his grip, Andy uses adidas Large Wristbands. As far as shoes go, Andy is in the Barricade 7.0 to ensure stability, traction and support for all of his quick on-court movement.

His gear: Andy finds the perfect blend of feel and stability with his Head Youtek IG Radical Pro. This racquet gives him a lively, spin-friendly response from the baseline with a crisp controlled feel at the net. He has it strung up with the very popular ATP tour string, Luxilon ALU Power 16L, which gives him added controlled power and is a durable option. He uses Tourna Grip XL as his overgrip of choice to make sure he has a soft, yet absorbing grip throughout his matches. To carry all of his gear to the court, Andy uses his very own Head Murray MonsterCombi bag which is big enough to carry all of his racquets, apparel, and more.
