This  is for a very good condition Head YouTek Speed MP, Grip Size 3 (4 3/8 in the American system). The Speed MP was used by Novak Djokovic - this is the latest 2011-present colour scheme.
[There is now a new model that is very slightly different - in light of this, I have reduced this racket from to £119.99 (with free postage), making it the cheapest of its type on eBay. Genuine reason for sale, as explained below.]

This racket has had very little use and is in very good condition; there are a few minor chips on the sides, just below the bumper strip, as shown in the pictures. This racket was always used with protective tape on it, to keep it in the best possible condition.
I am selling this for my friend who is a fully registered LTA coach - he used to coach me personally; I am only selling it for him because I sell a lot on eBay and know more about the details of eBay sales than he does.

The racquet has been freshly restrung, a restring worth around £20.

The racquet's beam is a on the narrow side at 20mm, giving a very high level of control. Yet the d3o technology ensures that when the ball is hit hard, the racquet stiffens giving plenty of power; this d3o technology also softens the racquet for gently, "touch," shots such as drop shots.

As can be seen from the picture, this is a very good looking, well designed racquet.

The reason that he is selling it is that he gets quite a bad elbow, so he has got a racket especially for his elbow. (Please note, this racket does not cause bad elbows any more than any other standard racket, just had has one that is especially gentle on the elbow!) This racket is almost exactly the same as I have - I use the 2010 model; I considered buying these from him, but the difference between the models (2010, 2011-2013 & the newest one) is so minimal that I just stick with my one.
This racket is a very popular racket with people that I know: I bought my one, then two people full time LTA coaches used it when I was playing with them, and they have now both changed rackets to it (one has even got a sponsorship deal with HEAD and many of the players that he coaches use it)!

Review by Tennis Warehouse:
Novak Djokovic's racquet of choice, this one offers the advanced level player all the control needed to dominate the court with aggressive play. The tight, 18x20 string pattern combines perfectly with the 100 square inch headsize to offer control, power, spin and feel from all areas of the court. From the baseline a long fast swing results in controllable power. The stringbed offers enough bite to add heavy spin, yet the tight string pattern offers the perfect feel for controlling flat shots. At net the racquet feels fast and responsive. Control is excellent and the racquet provides all the feedback needed to help the player find his/her targets on touch shots. Serving with the Speed 18x20 results in easy access to both pace and spin thanks to the racquet's manoeuvrable feel. All in all this is an impressive offering from Head and a great update to the Speed line.




d3o belongs to the "smart materials" category, which is a futuristic material with abnormal behaviour characteristics. More specifically, d3o belongs to a subcategory of "dilatant foams", which dramatically change their behaviour under dynamic loading or impact. Integrated in the lay-up and positioned in the shaft of the racquet, d3o offers new possibilities for tennis players.

The d3o technology is able to sense the needs of the players during different strokes (it's able to adapt to you). On high-speed impacts (aggressive shots), the smart molecules lock together within nanoseconds and dramatically increase the stiffness of the whole racquet frame to provide maximum power. On slow-speed impacts (slice or drop shots), the d3o molecules absorb the impact to provide a softer touch for better feel. What does this mean to a tennis player? Passing shots are even harder [more powerful] and drop shots more precise, rewarding your spontaneity and supporting your courageous decisions.



Its extreme toughness together with HEADs advanced carbon composite technology leads to a novel ultra tough hybrid composite.

The new HEAD Innegra™ hybrid-composite structure is integrated into the racquet for shock absorption and improved stability. As a result vibrations are reduced by up to 17% on ball impact for unique control and precision. This protects the player from the forces of a ball impact.

On top of this: HEAD’s new hybrid-composite structure with the ultra tough Innegra™ fibre considerably extends the performance of your HEAD racquet, that means that racquets remains longer in the perfect condition without losing any of its great properties.

Innegra™ Technology Feature:
- Extremely tough and light;
- Lightest fibre in the world today
- In combination with carbon fibre, Innegra™ forms an ultra tough hybrid-composite structure

- improved stability and increased shock absorption
- vibration on ball impact is reduced by up to 17% for unique control and precision
- HEAD’s new hybrid-composite structure considerably tends the performance of your HEAD racquet

Its specifications are the following:

Length: 69.0cm // 27.2"
Weight unstrung: 315g // 11.1 oz

Return policy details
I will accept returns within 14 days of receipt and refund the item's purchase price, providing the item is returned in the same condition in which it left me, complete with all original manufacturer's packaging, undamaged, so that I can sell it again. I don't provide a 'suck-it-and-see' service. All postage costs are the buyer's responsibility, unless I inadvertently send you the wrong item, which is extremely unlikely. If it is my fault then I will bear the costs, if you just change your mind or if you decide an item is not suitable, then I am sure that you will agree, there is no reason that it should cost me. I try and keep my prices and particularly my postage as low as possible, so I cannot afford to lose postage costs, just because someone who buys an item changes their mind or decides that it is not suitable for them. Where an item is sent 'Free Post', and you want to return it, but I have sent you the correct item as advertised, then a deduction will be made equivalent to the actual postage cost plus a small amount to cover my materials and time. If the mistake is mine, then this deduction will of course not apply. Thank you.
