    I consider myself a low to medium intermediate. I desperately need help choosing a racquet as I don't know much about them. I plan on playing 2 times a week and hopefully will get better.

    Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Volkl V-1? A good, general all-purpose frame.

    Becker V1 or any of the V1's are good choices.

    We need a little more information in order to help you.



    What style of game do you play - baseline, all court, serve and volley?

    What type of ball do you hit - lots of topspin, flat, or somewhere in between?

    What racquet are you currently using?

    Why do you want to change it - do you need more power, is it uncomfortable, do you need a larger size head, is it too heavy, is it too light, are you having a hard time swinging it fast enough, etc?

    What is your biggest hurdle to improving your game?

    i hate to give advice like this, but the V1 is a very safe bet. extremely comfortable and easy to play with. Power serve too (DNX V1).

    I would suggest what ever you choose demo them first.

    I see quite a few women playing with the Head Instinct and some that play the Head Radical line.

    Prince also has the Speedport Red that plays well IMO

    Babalot puredrive or Head Extreme if you like stiffer racquets.
