The Balance between Power and Control

If you’re still new to the sport of tennis, you may be unsure about what size racquet to purchase. Depending on the racquet head size, weight, and length, the racquet will fall somewhere on the spectrum between power and control.

Here’s a basic guide to help you determine the size, weight, and length of the racquet you need.
