I used to play tennis in high school but that's it. My last racket was either a Head or Puma (did they make rackets?) white wood and slightly warped. I was told it was expensive when originally purchased. Anyway, I've been walking the dog a lot trying to lose weight and every time I passed the tennis courts I thought to myself, hell, I can do that. Anyway, two days ago I bought a Wilson Zen 103 Team for $79 on sale at Sports Authority. Maybe a lot of people laugh at "off the shelf" pre-strung sticks but this thing (seems) nice but what do I know. I've spent the last two days using an outdoor handball court for practice. If I were to guess I'd say I'm a 4 out of 10 in terms of aiming and 6 out of 10 in terms of actually getting a racket on the ball unless it is far away. I have yet to play a game since 1981 or so. My wife has never played tennis and doesn't have very good eye/hand coordination. I bought her a Prince O3 110 and some of those big T.I.P. foam balls. She's enjoying it but I need to progress her faster. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone has any advice as to what to do next. I plan to keep practicing on the handball court until I regain some sort of aiming and consistency. Are there any DVDs appropriate for me or my wife? I really don't have a lot of free time or money for personal training. Any advice would be appreciated.
