Tennis rackets worth buying part 1

by TN

A great racket and some good strings will improve your game, no question about it. People that say that the equipment has nothing to do with it are lying. It doesn’t have everything to do with it, but you want to give yourself the best odds to win, right?

I have experienced with countless of setups throughout the years and finally found something I feel comfortable with. This is good because otherwise you will blame the racket, the strings, your slippery grip or something. I want to only blame myself when I am playing badly so I can fix it.

The setup I use today is Head Prestige Pro and Babolat RPM Blast strings. You can buy them both at Tennis Warehouse.
