Sometimes I like to talk about different tennis topics in front of my phone. I asked myself: what are the best control racquets?
When I recorded this vlog, I used the racquets I had nearby in my office. Otherwise, I could probably have talked for an hour. Since people seem to like it based on the feedback on YouTube, I will definitely do a part 2 at some point. If you have any questions about control racquets or other ideas you would like me to talk about in such a video, let me know in the comments below.
One of the key aspects of choosing a racquet is to understand who you are as a tennis player. What is your playing level (be honest), what are your weaknesses and strengths, what are your tendencies on the court, do you have a role model among the pros that you like to imitate? If you struggle with generating enough depth on your shots, a control-oriented racquet might not be the right choice for you. But if you are often overhitting on aggressive shots, a control racquet might help you reduce your mistakes.
Always remember that the racquet is supposed to be a natural part of you. It is not everything. You need to always work on your game.
