    Hello everyone

    i'm new on this forum, but not new to tennis

    i been playing tennis more then 5 years now, but now, i got to more advanced level, and having trouble with some of my shot.
    when i hit a forehand or back hand it usually flies out or goes in the net.

    and right now i have head liquidmetal 4 with a babolat pro hurricane tour strings with 62 lb tension on it.

    could the reason for me hitting most of my ball out, be my racquet?

    No, the racquet does not control the ball; you do.

    mostly its a matter of technique. if you're playing against people of a higher level, then odds are you aren't used to their pace yet. give it some time to adjust technique-wise. however, if you feel strongly that it may be the racquet, then demo some other ones and see what happens. if you play better, then by all means go for it.

    IMO though its mostly a mental thing.
