The Novak Djokovic Tennis Shoes of 2011 & 2012
While 2011 will mostly be remembered for Djokovic’s victories, it should also be noted that Djokovic found success with the Adidas Barricade 6.0 tennis shoes under his feet. I personally prefer the Nike Court Ballistec 3.3 Tennis Shoes to the Barricades, but there is no denying the durability and long lasting quality that the Barricades always provide.

Interestingly, Adidas released the newer 7.0 model just before the year end tournament where Djokovic was a participant. It seems that fellow top 5 ATP player Andy Murray quickly made the switch to the new model, but Djokovic preferred to stick to his tried and true Adidas Barricade 6.0 shoes.
It will be interesting to see what the official Novak Djokovic shoes will be for the 2012 tennis season. Will Djokovic be able to produce the same level of tennis he found in 2011? If so, he’s on the fast track to the all-time slam title list right next to Federer.
Now lets see how Novak Djokovic performed in 2011 while wearing hist custom Adidas tennis shoes.
2011, Novak Djokovic’s Incredible Year of Success at Wimbledon, Australia Open & US Open
Djokovic was catapulted into the year of 2011 on a high note after he helped Serbia to capture the Davis Cup championship. Coming into the Australian Open, one of the big four tennis majors and the first grand slam of the year, Djokovic was already on a hot streak. Players and analysts everywhere were talking about the form Djokovic was in and the desire he was showng in his matches.
Djokovic proved that he had found a new level of commitment when he took down Federer and Nadal in the semi and final respectively. After a dominating performance, Djokovic was already undefeated through nearly 20 matches. This run would continue all the way until the French Open where Djokovic lost his first match of the year to Federer. His record for the year fell to 41-1, but it would be the only major title to escape him in 2011.
Wimbledon and the US Open came and went in almost routine fashion. Djokovic saw no problems in tearing through the competition. His only test seemed to be Federer, who he luckily did not need to face in Wimbledon.
After capturing the US Open title over Nadal, Djokovic finished the year plagued by injuries that forced him to pull out of a number of events. Despite being unable to complete the season on a high, Djokovic goes into 2012 as the number one ranked ATP player in the world and a huge favorite at every tournament he enters.
