    I always thought that the pros prefer HL racquets...
    But recently i was reading a tennis magazine, and it had an article stating that pros prefer HH racquets...

    if so is it because they want more power in their shots??

    This has been discussed with much factual evidence and from memory the conclusion was that pros play with racquets that are head light, but far less headlight than the racquets that we buy that are called players racquets.

    The reason why their racquets are heavier, with greater swingweight and comparatively less headlight is indeed to get more power.

    Ummmm the average pro balances are around 32.5-33cm so they are headlight but not crazy headlight like TT users like them (31cm, 31.5 etc.)
