Re: Scratching a new racquet for the first time...

Yes its almost as bad as dropping a new cell phone. I remember when I would have a new racquet and if someone hit a really low ball I wouldnt even go for it since I didnt want to scratch it.

Re: Scratching a new racquet for the first time...

For the first couple of months after i get a new raquet i try not to do anything to it. After a while when its not so new i start throwing it. In 9 years of playing tennis quite regulary i've broken 4 raquets.

Yes, I hate it! But once you have one, then you can go crazy and scratch it a lot.

Re: Scratching a new racquet for the first time...

My new racquet has a few scratches on it but that's all I can expect from playing (almost) solely on red clay... and having a habit of touching the ground on my slice follow through on low balls.

I think my current one costs US$90. And I have two of them. But really, it's just a scratch. Not like I've destroyed the frame or something.
