When shopping for a tennis racquet, decide whether you are looking for a pre-strung racquet or an unstrung racquet. Pre-strung tennis racquets are a good choice for most beginner and intermediate players, as they are highly versatile and allow you to focus on the fundamentals without added complexity. Advanced players often prefer an unstrung racquet, which allows them to tailor the string type and tension to their swing and playing style.
Itís also important to consider the size and shape of the racquet head. Over-sized and mid-plus sized heads have larger sweet spots, making it easier to hit the ball with power, while smaller head sizes allow for greater control. Tear-drop shaped heads also provide a larger sweet spot, while traditional oval heads are valued for their feel and control.
Your swing style is another important factor to consider when shopping for tennis racquets. If you have a fast and long swing, you are likely able to provide all the power you need, and you may want to consider a racquet with a mid or mid-plus head, which can help you control your shot. If you have a shorter and slower swing, an over-sized racquet head may be a better choice, as it can increase the power of your shot.
You will also want to make sure that the grip of the racquet, as well as the weight, offer a comfortable feel. Using grip tape that is designed to absorb sweat can help improve your overall handling during your swing.
