In the Juniors Singles German Team HEAD player Alexander Zverev, who recommends the Graphene Speed, beat fellow Racquet Rebel Stefan Kozlov 6-3, 6-0 in a HEAD-to-HEAD final at the Australian Open. "This means a lot to me. I've been waiting for a Grand Slam victory for a long time," said 16 year old Zverev. "I played the finals in Paris and semis at the US Open where I couldn’t get the title. But now I made it to a victory.”

HEAD dominated the trophies in Men’s and Women’s Doubles with Poland's Lukasz Kubot last-minute pairing with Swede Robert Lindstedt to beat American Eric Butorac and Raven Klaasen from South Africa 6-3, 6-3. "I was really focused today, maybe I played the best match of my life in doubles," said Kubot, who danced a traditional Polish jig on court after the victory on a dare from his family.

HEAD's Roberta Vinci, won her fourth Grand Slam double title with fellow Italian Sara Errani as the top-seeded pair beat Russians Ekaterina Makarova and Elena Vesnina 6-4, 3-6, 7-5, producing seven breaks of serve in a tight battle. Vinci and Errani claimed a second straight Melbourne title to go with Roland Garros and the US Open, both in 2012.

HEAD Racquet Rebel Tomas Berdych headed home from the Australian Open ready to play for Davis Cup and proud of his accomplishments at the first Grand Slam of the 2014 season. The Melbourne semi-finalist, who recommends the Graphene Instinct, battled against 2014 Australian Open champion Stanislas Wawrinka 2-6, 7-6, 6-7, 6-7 for three and a half hours. Berdych was pleased with his semi-final effort: "It was a very good match, I played very well. But tiebreaks are always a big lottery and Stan was the lucky one."
