Re: Help me buying my First Racquet

ok freak... but mines a indoor shoes, i dont think it'll last long. the store person said that it's suitable for tennis.
BTW, i started playing tennis from yesterday. Also joined a coaching center, i learnt to hit the ball with a fore-hand shot on the first day. Today is for back-hand. Should have to learn serving the ball well.

Re: Help me buying my First Racquet

Dont buy aluminum rackets, they are crap, says an user, friend of mine.

Buy a graphite one or carbon at least, titanium isnt bad either, look for old lines for cheaper prices.

Re: Help me buying my First Racquet

Just saw this thread. In case you are still looking to buy one,
I believe that a titanium racket would be the best for what you are looking for.
The Head Ti series is pretty popular in India, and it has a couple of makes within INR 2500. One from this series was my first racquet. Got it for 1750 about 3 years ago.
Depending on which city you are in, I could direct you to where to buy them too.

Re: Help me buying my First Racquet

I would always recommend informing yourself about what type of racquet you need before you go to a shop, where the assistant may try to sell you the most expensive frame whether or not it suits you as a player...
