    Lasted me 20+ hours! I don't crush the ball mind you except for 1st serves. I go with a medium paced loopy topspin forehand and a flatter top 2hbh. no elbow issues as well. The Pro Open (mine are the NCode versions) are really good racquets imo. I think you really have to figure out what type of game you want to play and where you want to go with it. The Pro Open is versatile but if you want to swing out on every shot and let it rip you may want to switch to a low powered 'players' frame. You'll perfect generating your own power (if not already) and have better control. keep in mind there are tons of college level players using APDGT's and Pure Drives and the Pro Open is very similar. if you put the work in with any racquet you'll figure out how to use it the way you want.

    This one. I generate a bucket load of spin using an 18 x 19 pattern but I actually swing a little more aggressively when trying to hit angles or really rip the ball. It usually comes down to grip and/or lack of racquet head speed. Practice and you will find out fairly quickly.

    Does your college offer intramural or a club team options for tennis. I know some intermediate level players that were not strong enough to play collegiate tennis but they played club or intramural. Might be a good way to meet tennis players. Also, mixed doubles could really open up some options - co-eds in nice tennis clothes sounds great to an old man like me.

    Lol! No I am at a community college and there's no team. I'm going to play at the club level hopefully when I transfer to a university. That sounds excellent to me as well...most tennis chicks are nice and lean ;)

    Community college, 4.0 intermediate class, I don't think so.
    4.5 would be varsity tennis team.
    But I hope the coach is right.
