Unveiling Novak Djokovic’s secret weapon: the Taopatch

Novak Djokovic, regarded by many as the greatest tennis player of all time, has an intriguing secret weapon that helps him succeed on the court. It is a small wearable called Taopatch that he keeps close to his chest.

This mysterious device may appear to be an inconspicuous addition to his ensemble at first glance. But upon closer inspection, it reveals itself to be a remarkable piece of technology that Djokovic swears by.

Rewriting the record books

Nole’s triumphant victory at Roland Garros in Paris has cemented his place in tennis history, adding more records to his already impressive resume. His victory yesterday at the French Open was his 23rd Grand Slam title. This makes him the male player with the most in the Open Era, ahead of Nadal with 22 to his name.

He also became the first person in history to win each Grand Slam at least three times. Djokovic is the oldest men’s singles winner at the French Open since 1968, at 36 years and 20 days. The Serb also tied the all-time record for most Grand Slam finals appearances with his 34th appearance. Love him or hate him – these records, among many others, firmly establish Djokovic as one of the greatest athletes of all time.

Among the excitement surrounding these accomplishments, the tennis world has been intrigued by the mystery wearable that Djokovic wears during some of his matches. The object was clearly visible on his chest held in place by a piece of tape, as the Serbian star changed his shirt following his three-set victory over Hungarian player Marton Fucsovics.

Nole was asked about the strange little object during a post-match press conference. He explained that his team provides him with highly efficient microtechnology to enhance his performance on the court, making a playful reference to his childhood admiration for Iron Man.

It turns out, the object is something called the Taopatch. This is a wearable device Djokovic believes plays an important role in his success.

How Taopatch works

Nole’s support for the Taopatch is not surprising given his health-conscious lifestyle and belief in alternative medicine. This is a medical device patented in Italy and 100% manufactured in Italy. It uses nanocrystals known as quantum dots to convert the body’s natural infrared heat into therapeutic wavelengths.

These wavelengths are then used to stimulate neuralgic points in the body that are out of balance. The patch does not emit any chemicals and instead derives its health benefits from the conversion process. Taopatch claims to improve body movement, restore joints and alleviate pain caused by incorrect postural patterns. It also improves physical and biological performance, and boosts proprioception.


On the official website of Taopatch, the manufacturer states that over the past seven years, more than 1,800 medical professionals have had the opportunity to test the product, as well as about ten sports teams, and hundreds of thousands of patients. A series of studies on this subject have been published, including from universities in Turin, Milan, Palermo and Rome. Apparently, this was enough for Djokovic to decide to try this new product himself.

Is this wearable a key to his success?

All eyes are on Djokovic’s as he continues to rewrite the record books. Whether or not this wearable technology plays a role in his incredible achievements is difficult to say.

It might be a small piece of the larger puzzle that is his game strategy, physical prowess and hard work ethic. But Nole seems to believe that it is important, and perhaps that belief is what makes the difference. Regardless, for the time being we can only marvel at Djokovic’s court command and speculate on the role this tiny patch plays in his monumental success.

One thought on “Unveiling Novak Djokovic’s secret weapon: the Taopatch

  • This statement: “These wavelengths are then used to stimulate … ” is nonsense. Wavelength is a measurement of a periodic function, like light and radio waves. It is not a physical object or energy in itself, and can’t stimulate or affect anything.

    It’s the equivalent of saying km/hr make a vehicle faster, or centimeters make a person tall.

    I am not debating whether this device is helpful or not, but the description of it is mumbo jumbo.
