Klizan returns to Head racket after three weeks

Is this a new world record? Just two matches,  4 sets,  131 minutes on court and new racket is changed for old one.

We reported on 5th January that Martin Klizan, currently number 43 in ATP ranking, changed his racket at the start of the season. However his new Babolat racket did not stay with him for a long time. After terrible start of his season, he decided to switch back to his formerly used HEAD racket.

Martin Klizan started season in Dauha, Qatar with loss 2-6 3-6 against Kyle Edmund. Then he moved to Sydney where he retired in first round match against Jared Thompson (2-6 0-4) complaining on sore shoulder. Best result, however loss again, he reached in Melbourne at Australian Open against Robert Bautista-Agut in 1st round (2-6 3-6 6-4 6-2 2-6). This game he already played with his old HEAD racket.

Poor start of the season takes its first toll – Babolat racket. We will see, if with his old HEAD racket, Klizan would be able to show better performance and results. Or we will see another casualty – probably his new coach Martin Hromec.

And of course we updated again all related tables – BRANDS, HEAD Rackets, Babolat Rackets and ATP TOP 100 players.
