Novak Djokovic has said that he’s more comfortable using the new racket as he aims to follow in the footsteps of Roger Federer.

Djokovic made some ‘minor changes’ after consulting with Andre Agassi and Radek Stepanek, with both of whom he split recently.

“I changed the racquet earlier this year. I made some small minor changes that actually in our world are quite significant,” the Serb said, as quoted by

“Agassi and Radek, who worked with me at the time, felt it was a good call for the big picture and for the long run,” he added.

The 12-time Grand Slam champion, who returned to the circuit recently after being out for almost six months due to an elbow injury, said that he’s feeling more comfortable with the new racket.

“I feel more comfortable with the racquet as I go along. Obviously it takes a little bit of time.

“I think Roger [Federer] some years ago also had that racket change, and it took him a little bit, some months, to get comfortable with it.”

Meanwhile, Djokovic is scheduled to participate in next week’s Barcelona Open. He will then compete in Rome and Italy before season’s second Grand Slam, the French Open.
