Just one example would be reaction volleys, after a set or so you will be too slow with the heavier racquet but a lighter one you'll have a much better chance with.
mmm interesting thoughts thanks, i take your point perhaps even these middle weight rackets might be a but much for her?

as I am sure you can imagine she has well developed full strokes but very old school and her movement is not great, perhaps she does need a good tweener!?

can't resist a bit of name dropping and small claim to fame; she used to date Nastase for a while said he was completely mad but that was the attraction apparently I was quite close to being Nastase's son

any recommendations?
