Re: What tennis racquet do u use?
I use the Head Liquidmetal 4, and have for about 2 years. It's very cheap (only about $70) and is an EXCELLENT racquet for mediocre players (not great players, but not beginners either). Also, I string my own racquets, and I've found that this is the easiest racquet I've ever strung (easy specs, good holes, long lasting grommets, etc).
I've demoed a bunch of newer rackets, like the Head Youtek, KFactor, BLX, some Yonex ones... none of them give me the control, consistency, and occassional power that I have with the LM4.
If you're a player looking to step past beginner, and don't want to spend a lot on a racquet, I would recommend this one for sure.
How should you be? You should be like a rocky promontory against which the restless surf continuously pounds.
It stands fast while the churning sea is lulled to sleep at its feet. I hear you say,
"How unlucky that this should happen to me."
But not at all.
Perhaps say instead how lucky I am that I am not broken by what has happened,
and I am not afraid of what is about to happen.
