Is this tennis racket appropriate for a beginner?

I found this racket for sale on CraigsList:

Would it be appropriate for a beginner? I'm 5'7".

I'm also hoping to play long-term, would this racket be a reasonable investment? Or should I opt for something better?

Re: Is this tennis racket appropriate for a beginner?

its light and has a big headsize, which are the 2 main considerations for a beginner. so yes is the answer. its not the highest quality frame, but as a beginner you probably wouldnt really notice and once you improve and develop your strokes you can get something a step up in quality
