Looking for a new racquet and place to order from
Ok, so in high school, I REALLY enjoyed playing tennis. When I got to college, I did not play it nearly enough. Now, my friend and I are starting to get back in the groove of tennis, as an alternate form of exercise to just straight running.
However, I was playing with my racquet from back in High school.. which means it is now over 9 years old. I had a wilson Graphite Select... part of their SPS (super ligh power series) line (wouldn't be suprised if you haven't heard of it). I believe it was oversized, and it was very light (especially w/all the chips on the frame accrued over the years lol).
We were playing yesterday... some REAALY great tennis. I won the first set 6-6 7-3 on the tie breaker. The next set was 6 him 5 me, I was winning the 6th, and I broke the strings, lol.
Now I need a new racquet!!
My play style is VERY touch based and I slice all the time. My serve is not fast, but has a HUGE curve on it. Generally speaking, people who play me on a regular basis know to start off in the doubles lane, and they still have to run to get it. I love drop shots, and need to place accurate lobs. I play very low on the grip, usually with a finger or two off (during serves). Other than that, I'm a huge noob.. so no other special requests. I ask for your advice just because I've been out of the loop for sooooooo long.
Also, with the advent of internet shopping.. I realize that you can get things WAY cheaper over the net... so I was wondering if there was a *reputable* cheap online place to buy tennis supplies. This doesn't mean that I'm not willing to put some money down for a good racquet, but if you know you can get it $20-50 cheaper somewhere else.. that's just being a smart shopper.
Thank you very much, and I appreciate any help I can get!!
