Re: What tennis racquet do u use?
I demoed both of the racquets I had mentioned earlier last week: first I hit with the Yonex V Core 98. I felt I hit the ball really well when I was in a good position, but I played poorly when defending. I had planned to demo it the whole session but then switched to the Head Youtek Prestige MP. Surprisingly, I started to hit very good and consistent BH with good pace right away, the FH and serve took some time to adjust but I felt really good about the racquet. I will demo it again tomorrow. Unfortunately I can't try the two other models as they are not available here. I think I might have found my new racquet, espacially if I put on my usual strings.
I have been playing with Yonex for almost 10 years (part of it was 'cuz I enjoyed Maggie Maleeva, Monica Seles and Mary Pierce a lot), and I really loved the RD Ti 80. The successor (RQiS Tour 1) was okay but I think I will be switching back to Head.
Also, I finally downgraded the grip from L4 to L3 and I'm even thinking to go to L2 (with overgrip then though). I don't have big hands and I think that has not been good for my game these last 5 years or so.
