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.
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.
The main rule with grip size is that you want a handle big enough so that there is some space between the tips of your fingers and your hand (like the image on the left). If your fingers go all the way around the handle and run back into your hand (like the image on the right), you need a larger grip size.
26 in. racquets are generally for kids ages 11-12, who have played tennis for a few years or are able to handle swinging a longer racquet. If the junior is above the age of 12, we recommend that you look at purchasing an adult racquet ranging in length between 27 – 27.25 inches.
Racquet heads range between 85-125 square inches. The spectrum is often broken down into mid-size (85-90), mid-plus (95-100), over-size (101-110) and super-oversize (111-125). Many touring pros play with mid-size and mid-plus racquets because of the level of control that they get.
