I want to buy a tennis racquet for my boyfriend as a christmas gift, but i do not know much how to choose it.

By the way, my boyfriend is quite a good player. He has played tennis for more than 10 years. And he is quite strong but not very tall. I think he is a power player.

This is what my friend recommend to me, so, could you help me to choose one?

IS it right that the most expensive one is the best? But I need a most suitable one.

Also, could you tell me some good online sporting goods stores? I want to order online.

Thanks!

I would buy a Wilson tennisracket, the Williams sisters are using now, you know the N-code thing.

You really should know what type of game he plays before you buy a racquet, cause you'll need to get one suited to his game.

Maybe if you find out what raquet he has at the moment, then the tennis experts on this site might be able to find a similar but more advanced raquet? Perhaps?

Don't buy him a racquet. If he is a good player, he will prefer to choose it himself. And don't offer to pay, otherwise he may choose a cheaper racket than the one he really wants. Buy him tennis balls, or a shirt, or AO tickets, or something.
