New Racquet for College Student

Hello guys,

I'm new here. I go to college in NYC and am on the tennis team. Nothing professional or near that or anything but I have a racquet from the past six years and I'm looking to get a new one. At the moment I have the Williams Hammer full size racquet.

Main positives about my game: Serve, backhand and especially my slice and drop shots.
Main weaknesses: Forehand

I'm about 5'10 and I'm a size 11 on the shoes.

Ideally, I'd like to spend around $50. Definitely under $100.

Anything else you'd like to know? Bring on the suggestions! I will be buying it in New York City somewhere.

Thanks,
Crazysah

I'm pretty sure you won't find a good racquet that costs under 100 bucks if you're playing college tennis.


Tennis Tipping Results:
Win: BEIJING (Singles)
PARIS (Doubles w/AdeyC), 4 CHALLENGERS in Doubles
RUNNER-UP: ROLAND GARROS 2012 (Doubles w/AdeyC)

If you have a credit card, buy online. Check out Tenniswarehouse.com

go to the head rackets and down to the liquid metal series. choose the radical oversize, $80 and free shipping. Or go to dunlop and pick the aero gel 500 for $55. Problem solved
