I found very interesting article, by Prof. Rod Cross. He stated, “Why do players stretch the fingers of their free hand? Don’t askme, I don’t know. My guess is that when players tense their muscles to hit ashot, they tense all their muscles, not just the ones they need to tense (about95% of them)”.
Right now, I’m not so sure about relaxed arm and wrist inparticularly during the serve and any tennis stroke! Maybe we should grip handle much harder than we do. What do you think about that?
Thank you Tim for your outreach and your comments. I am looking forward to meeting some of the members and finding some hitting partners. I am not computer savvy, so it will take me a while to really get connected to things. Thanks and Take Care!
Now that makes sense using a lighter racquet for dbls. I would love to try a blx if I can find a decent one thats not to pricey. I curently have three racquets the ncode six.one 95. Another ncode ntour2 . and a dunlop revelation mid plus. Three completely different racquets. lol
Wow, You posses alot of knowledge about racquets , strings etc. So I should stay away from from any racquets weighing lower than 11.0 oz? I think my problem is I play three times a week but its all on a drop in dbls type of format so I dont get a chance to go out and work on stroke or consistancy as I would like for then I could try some demos more often. I thank you for taking the time to help me find a good racquet for me. I'm getting pretty decent with the ncode but I feel I could get better faster with something beter suited for me.
I have not tried many other racquest and the wilson seems to have a good feel , but as you said the weight can hurt my shoulder after a few sets of serving. I lke the headlight feel and have been told i have very quick hands. The blx I agree sounds like a good fit but I'm not sure i can afford to but the newest one at the moment. I would like to try a racquet thats 10.6 - 11.4 but as you said it depends on my type of play or swing. I'm not sure what type of swing I have but i do know that with the ncode racquet i currentlt have i cannot swing full speed and keep it in the court.
Thank you Tim. I would like to talk to someone that might point me in the best direction for the correct racquet type for me. I had not played in almost 26 years before 5 months ago. I quit tennis after first year of college and commited totally to racquetball which i actually played semit pro for almost 10 years before having knee surgery. I love playing tennis now and play three times a week usually. I currently use a wilson ncode six.one 95 10pts headlight which I like but I think it might b a little heavy for me. Any help is appreciated.
