Hi I am a shorty 5' 7" and flabby 175 lbs and a 2.0 to 2.5 novice. I have tried the Babolat APD, Head Prestige, and a few of the other "player" racquets and they don't seem to work for me. Ok so I suck at tennis But I love watching the game and wish that I can just play a half-decent game. I just need a racquet I can hit some decent shots with, while keeping the ball in as well as clearing the net. A friend recommended a + length racquet and he said it would be good for short guys to swing with, as the extended length increased court coverage. I may be fat but not that strong, so I am wary of the increased strength needed to swing a longer racquet (physics). What would be some good racquet choices? For both normal 27" and extended 27.5"-28"? Thanks in advance!
