We could talk about the big win, as usual, for Nikein this year's men's final between Rafael Nadal and Tomas Berdych - Nikehas them both head to toe. But that's pretty apparent. Here are our two less obvious notes:
Djokovic's Move to Sergio Tacchini
We've known the Joker to be an adidas guy, but things change. We may be late to the party on this news, but we're big fans of the old school brand, Sergio Tacchini.Classic, clean, perfect for Wimbledon.

However, Djokovic is still wearing the adidas Barricade tennis shoe and swinging the Head YouTek Speed Pro Tennis Racquet.
Rafa's New Strings
As part of his standard excellent color commentary of the Wimbledon final, John McEnroe made note of the specific string Champion Rafael Nadal was using, Babolat RPM Blast. The RPM Blast is the new string used by both Nadal and Andy Roddick - its a good string for big hitters like those two. It sports an 8-sided cross-section which adds extra bite on the ball for added topspin and slice. New high density co-polymer polyester monofilament combined with a new cross-linked silicone coating provides even more spin and greater ball control.
Check out the RPM Blast at Amazonor at Do It Tennis.

Head Flexpoint 10 - An oversize, power-oriented racquet. Offers a very powerful feel thanks to its 31mm width beam. Also, slightly lighter than the other FlexPoint frames. Best suited for players with shorter, compact strokes looking for power. Recommended for the 1.5-2.5 NTRP level players. Liquidmetal Technology: Liquidmetal material is applied to four strategic areas of the racquet's head and it is the only material that utilizes all the energy your swing generates. No energy is lost on ball impact due to its liquid atomic structure. Hole+Dimple=Flexpoint: These two precisely engineered holes, positioned at 3 and 9 o'clock on the racquet head, work together to bring power in control. The dimple is engineered to create flexibility by reducing beam height by a maximum of 25%. The hole reduces sectional stiffness up to 50%. The hole and dimple allow a player to harness maximum power and control it.
Dunlop M Fil Lady - A lightweight and maneuverable racquet engineered with the female player in mind. The M-FiL Lady features a stiff racquet hoop for power and stability, while the proven ISIS handle system protects the player from racquet shock and vibration. Ideally suited for players with moderate, powerful strokes. Recommended for the 3.0-4.5. ISIS: (Impact Shock Isolation System), in the racquet handle, dampens frame vibration and helps protect the arm from tennis elbow. Includes racquet and matching sling-pack racquet bag. Racquet bag features a single racquet-specific pouch and a main compartment that can be used for an additional racquet or gear and accessories
