I've started playing tennis like 2 weeks ago with my neighbour who's only as good as i am
I have to buy my 1st tennis racket which i am excited about but obviously need help from the experts.
I've done some reading regarding the weight, head size, length, flexibility, material of different racket and do understand the basics but i do not have experience.
My budget is $60 for my 1st racket, hopefully that should last me 2years.
I am looking to buy graphite racket, weight around 10oz, head size 105-110sq.in. lenght i guess 27inch.
I am playing for leisure and to keep fit, but i am competitive and want to improve as much as possible. I am athletic and a fast learner, am 5'6" tall, 29yrs. old and 135lbs. My grip is between 4-5/8 and 4-6/8.
Following are the rackets i have shortlisted but any advice in any direction is appreciated.

Also what type of balls should i be buying for practice, something that not very expensive and would last sometime. I usually play 3 days a week, 45 mins-1 hr. a day.
Thanks for the help guys
