Which racquet for me???

hi!
I've been playing tennis for 4 years, with friends. till now I've been using aluminium racquet, then a Dunlop one I bought in a mall,now I'm using Wilson US Open.
Next month, I'm going to the college and I'd like to join its Tennis club and i think i should buy a better racquet?
Wich one would you recommend??
I'm 190 cm tall,79 kilos weight, long hands and quite big palms.
thanks for all suggestions!!

the nTour Two [Wilson] is fantastic
...
since I began using it my game has improved out of sight [esp great for power/top spin] !
Justine Henin uses it but it`s more of a men`s racket in my opinion

well, you are wrong there, a 95 sq inch head and a weight of just over 300 grams make it a better racket for women.

something with around a 100 sq inch head you probably be good. here are some options:

yonex rds 003
wilson npro open
head microgel extreme
prince 03 white
babolat pure drive

Re: Which racquet for me???

i can only advice you to demo quite a few rackets before buying one. NOONE knows what racket will be good for you. i'm not tellin you to ignore all recommendations, but you probably won't get along with 4 out of 5 rackets, so you really really have to test several rackets before making a decision. you will regret it if you dont.
