I am beginner in tennis. I want a racket that is good for getting balls back. So, rather more control than power i think. :confused: Please advice me which I would be good getting.

Go buy whatever is on sale. If you are still playing in a year, start worrying about what racquet to choose.

If you want a nice racquet and not just a Wal-Mart special, get thishttp://www.tennis-warehouse.com/descpageRC-PASD.html. Great racquet for beginners and it's a great deal.

if you already have a racquet, and it isn't one that's going to hurt your arm, just use that (unless it is absolutely unplayable). agree with what netman said about waiting until later to start worrying about specific racquets.

Get a Prince, it gives the advantage whether your playing topspin or power, usually they have more control too. A Shark MS should be fine.

Do not go out and buy the most expensive racquet, but don't also go out and buy a walmart racquet or any other really cheap racquet, because neither of those will help you improve. I first started out with the TT Hornet OS. It has great blend of power and control and now i use 300G's.

As of now, you don't know what type of game you are playing (whether your baseliner, topspin user, net player), so don't worry too much about what racquet you get. As you get better, you'll know what you want.

Good recommendations for starting out racquets: Prince Hornet OS, Prince Shark OS/MP, Head ti.s6, Head i.radical

I dont know which racquet to get either.
I am trying to decide on the n3 or the n4.
I am looking for a racquet with alot of power and with some control.
Which one should i get???

I started out with the (now discontinued) Hyper Pro-Staff Extreme 6.7, then as a transitioning racquet Pure Drive, and now A Hyper Pro Staff 6.1, but now i'm thinking about getting a POG mid.

netman best advice get a bargain racket, but have it re-strung and within a year you will know what to get as a serious racekt. Good Luck !

Best deal going right now for a starter racquet is the Prince TT Bandit. TW has them for $60. I you want something larger try the TT Scream OS, also for $60. These were TOTL racquets 3 seasons ago and both are screaming deals at TW right now.
