Also, if you play seriously, after you buy the racket get it restrung straight away, the strings that come with a racket are always awful.
The problem is, tennis over here is not very popular, and I don't think there are any shops which specialise in selling tennis equiptment, which is why I don't think any of the shops which do sell tennis rackets would let buyers test them out.
