High school rankings are upon me and I've been practicing just about every day. I went to get a private lesson from a fella I know and asked him about his wood racquets on the wall a couple times. I asked if I could see it and he said to play with it some. Well, he said I played better with the thing. Me, still a little hessitant, took it to play with a prospect that may be a rival on the team this upcoming year. We played a set. I used the wooden racquet and him with his Wilson ProStaff. I noticed that I wasn't thinking about power (the thing is probably 4 times smaller than my OS Prince Scream) and more about shot placement. It got me to thinking about where to serve the ball, when to go to net, and where to hit it. Well, I was down 4-5 and on 40-30, second serve. I decided to try and serve it wide and volley. Not only did I serve it wide, but to not only my astonishment, served an ace that was clearly in, leaving my opponent so flabbergasted. He hit the ball back to me, trying to say it was out, when he and I knew it was clearly in. In the end, I won in a tiebreaker, not only beating him, but controlling his bonafide forehand and exploiting his weaknesses. My question is this. Is it a good idea to practice with a wooden racquet? I was even thinking about using it at rankings to completely demoralize some of my opponents. Thanks for the help.
