Deciding on a tennis racket
To make things easier, we’ve grouped each racket into one of three categories based on their characteristics: Ultimate Control Rackets, Powerful Control Rackets and Lightweight Power Rackets.
Secondly, are there different types of tennis rackets?
There are three main types of tennis rackets. The first type, which is used primarily by advanced players, is known as the Player’s Racket or the Control Racket. The second type of racket is known as the Tweener Racket. The third type of tennis racket is known as the Power Racket.
Hereof, what type of tennis racquet should I buy?
For this swing style, beginners or intermediate players should go for the Ultra tennis racket while more advanced players should grab a Pro Staff. Players who play with more modern, vertical swings typically want their rackets to generate more control and feel.

A longer racquet provides more reach on groundstrokes, added leverage on serves and slightly more power overall than standard length racquets; all other things being equal. The added length of longer racquets results in a higher swingweight, which means a little more effort is required to maneuver the racquet.

As a rule the more expensive the racket the better the string job. Less expensive rackets will likely not have great strings however if your strings feel good and you can play with them then certainly do not cut them out. Remember strings are the only thing that make contact with the ball, they are worth investing in.

Babolat started in France, also as a manufacturer of tennis strings. Babolat is actually a very old brand, with its start dating back to 1875. … However, since the game has become increasingly slower, with hard courts that allow the shots to bounce higher, Babolat is now seen as a good racquet for all surfaces.
