Re: Racquet Question
That black guard is known as grommets. They price anywhere from $5 to $15 but you would also have to get your racket restrung.
If your grommets are wearing thin it might be because you are scraping the racket against the ground too often. As a former tennis instructor I'd say scraped grommets indicate poor stroke technique. Ex. On low balls instead of dropping your racket head try to keep your same swing with your racket level but bend your knees more to hit the low ball.
