When choosing a racket, there are three elements which affect power and control: headsize, weight, and string pattern.
- Larger Headsize = More Power; Smaller Headsize = More Control.
- Lighter Racket = More Power; Heavier Racket = More Control.
- Open Stringbed = More Power; Denser Stringbed = More Control.
Hereof, what do the numbers on tennis rackets mean?
The first number, 16, is the number of mains in the strings. Those are the ones the run up and down from the top of the head toward the handle. The 2nd number, 19, are the number of cross strings. … The fewer amounts of strings in a racquet will equal more spin. And the more strings will equal more control.

The Proximus Diamond Games tennis racquet is actually a prize but it still tops the list with an estimated worth of a whopping $1.3 million. This practical/prize tennis racquet is made from pure gold and weighs 8.8 pounds. Apart from this, it is also studded with around 1,700 real diamonds.
Federer, for what it’s worth, is using a racket that weighs in north of 12.5 ounces — far too heavy for the average club-level player or even high-level junior for that matter.
The heavier the racquet, the more power it will offer. … Heavyweight tennis racquets (+ 300 grams) help to produce more power behind the ball and can help to maintain control in a faster swing. Heavier racquets are mostly used by Professional, Tour, Advanced players as well as those who want to generate more power.
Some basic concepts – a heavy racket is more powerful, more stable and transmits less shock than a lighter racket (all other things being equal). A lighter racket is more maneuverable and thus, a player is able to swing it faster.
