Recently, the girl who was presented with the racquet was seen practicing on an indoor tennis court. In a short clip, her coach gives a glimpse of the prized possession and seemed in awe of the equipment that helped the Serb win his sixth Wimbledon Championships title.

The Serbian’s season  has been phenomenal. He began his journey in Melbourne, winning the Australian Open for a record ninth time. After that, he won the French Open in Paris, knocking out the 13-time champion Rafael Nadal in the semifinal.

Then came the Wimbledon Championships, and right from the beginning of the tournament, there never came an instance when one felt the Serbian player would be beaten. He has been in ruthless form and it doesn’t look like he’s going to stop anytime soon.
