WATCH: Breaking Down The Match Kits At The US Open | The Break


Racquet: Head Speed Pro ($269) (Purchase now at

The Speed Pro is made to suit the exacting needs of a player like Djokovic. Its 18x20 string pattern and generous flex give it a control-oriented response, with the majority of power coming from the frame’s weight and user’s swing speed. The strings are spread wide enough to offer a respectable spin-window, but it excels at directing flat lasers into tight spots. At net, the racquet’s fine control and smooth handling allows it to produce the full range of volleys.

All in all, a dependable and refined all-court performer. As seen here, it’s currently available in a limited-edition all-black cosmetic.

Apparel: Lacoste Djokovic Polo ($110) (Purchase now at

Lacoste Djokovic Short ($80) (Purchase now at

The polo's seamless, ultra-dry technical fabric make it light and breathable, while the color-block design keeps it stylish. A rigid crocodile sewn into the chest and Djokovic logo on the left sleeve complete the look. The shorts have an elastic waistband and internal drawstring for a custom fit. Accent panels and storage pockets adorn the sides, with mesh lining on the inside of the legs for maximum breathability.

Shoes: Asics Court FF 3 ($175) (Purchase now at

Djokovic has moved around clothing sponsors, but he continues to trust his valuable feet to Asics. He even participated in the design process on the Court FF 3, making sure it can handle his demanding footwork. The newly designed outsole is divided into two distinct parts to provide a larger contact area at landing and buttress the foot on changes of direction. The FlyteFoam midsole is thicker, raising the weight of the shoe, and has been updated with renewable planet-friendly fibers. The Twistruss support system has also been separated into a two-piece to give greater gradual stiffness towards the toe and better manage the torsional stability of the shoe. Most notably, it affords more medial flexibility to promote controlled slides with a faster recovery step.
