Tennis and Table Tennis
I just quit playing Table Tennis. It went for four years non-stop, three hours a day five days a week.
I found Tennis. I truly enjoy the outdoors, the smell of nature and the social life around it.
I got very excited about the sport. I bought a Prince O3 red racquet and in one 6-0, 6-0, 6-0 loosing match I killed my wrist.
The funny thing is that I have used three different sets of strings before the injury. First string was Prince Premier with Softflex 16 (it came with the racquet), but had it cut away because it did not feel as soft as the test racquet...then a Prince Synthetic Gut 16 was put on...I thought that that was the best string ever...(I new that gut was the best string there is).
Then I went back to the salesman and asked for the same string the test racquet had on...it was a Babolat Pro Tour Speed 15L and had it strung at 55 lbs. Damn...that was the end of my wrist. I found out that that string was of polyester made string. Very hard.
Anyways, after a long week rest and some medication I am ready to take my first ever lesson in Tennis. My racquet has a new string, Prince Premier with Softflex 17 at 60lbs and hopefully will learn to not use the wrist as I am used to with Table Tennis.
