I want to learn tennis during this period, oh, it's my last summer holiday on campus.
Anyway, I don't even have the rackets yet,
my boyfriend recommended me to buy on
http://www.opentip.com/catalog/Tennis-1_128.html
which seems convenient and price-reasonable.
but as a beginner, I have no idea about this, would you guys please give me some opinions or advice?

btw:what gift should I choose for my bf? for he's fond of tennis so much!

You'd better have the racket in your hands before you buy it.

Is your post an advert BTW?

Hi,
Sorry, my first post was a bit short...
I meant that it's important to feel comfortable with the racket. That's why you should at least take it in your hands before you buy it and try to hit the ball to see if you feel good.
The mistake to avoid is : "I want the same racket as Federer cause he's the best"
You should choose a racket that matches your level or you could end up with a beautiful and expensive racket that only allows you to hit... home runs... :)

Good luck!
