    A matching outfit and a matching racquet... she'll be ruling the USTA toddler section for sure. Might want to get her signed up w/ IMG after you get her a shoe deal... :p

    I got my first tennis racquet at age 6. I'm 28 now so I'm been playing for awhile :)

    Man time has really changed. My first tennis racquet was a full lenght 27". I don't think there were kid's racquets back then.

    I was 11, it was a 28" OS Wilson Kmart Special. About 2 years later I got my first 'real' racquet, a Wilson Hammer 5.0 28". I think I got it because I liked the colors. I have only had 4 different racquets in my 8.5 years of playing.
