Tennis Express Staff Favorite Tennis Racquets

Here at Tennis Express the selection of tennis racquets is unbelievable. We carry at least 15 different brands of racquets. Some tennis players easily pick up any racquet and adjust to it without even thinking, no matter the size or weight. Other, like myself and a couple of coworkers I spoke to have only played with one particular racquet, or prefer to play with only that special racquet. Ever wonder what the tennis experts and know-it-alls prefer? Well, I talked shop with a few workers that eat, sleep, and breathe tennis from our Houston store and these are a few of their favorite racquets to take on the court!

“Right now I’m playing with the Wilson Blade 98 16X19 Countervail. This generation, I felt like I really like the 16X19. It wasn’t springing balls as much as I was with the last two generations. Since I’m not losing much consistency with the 16X19, over the 18X20, I felt like I could get more spin. I still have a good amount of touch and control on the ball. It’s helped me, (the little less string pattern). I get more pop with it, and obviously spin, so it all works out. Originally when I switched over to the Blades two generations ago I was playing with the 98s. That gave me a lot of good power, good spin.” – Alex Myers, Team Sales.

“My favorite racquet is the Wilson Burn 95 because it’s a really solid and powerful racquet.” – Bill V., Stringer

“My favorite tennis racquet is the Yonex Tour F97 VCore Racquet. I switched from the Wilson Blade 90s to this racquet because I wasn’t really in love with the new version – the green version. And I find that the racquet has a pretty good sweet spot. It has more open string pattern, and since I play with a lot of spin it seems to lend itself to that style of play. I feel like it’s very forgiving and I like the balance on it. So, that’s the racquet I play with. I might take advantage of the TE’s Daily Demo Days to have one of the pros show me what’s a newer version of the racquet I’m playing with, because I really like the way I’m hitting with this racquet and I’d like to find something comparable.”– David L., Project Management

“My favorite racquet is the Head Speed Adaptive because you can customize it in length and weight to fit your style of play.” – Jordan, Team Leader

“My favorite racquet is the Prestige Pro. That’s my favorite racquet because it has a lot of power and it has a pretty fast swing spin.” – Juan, Stringer

“My favorite racquet is the Pro Staff 97. It’s my favorite racquet because it feels really great and I hit very well with it.” – Liam T., Stringer

“I play with the Prince Experimental 03 White 100 inch head – it’s the Maria Sherapova edition. [I play with this racquet for] mostly comfort. I’ve been playing with this racquet for about eight years now. I feel like its heavier weight lends more to me being able to swing harder and the 100 inch head makes it really easy to play defensively. And, it makes my serve more accurate!” – Marshall Hitipeuw, Content Team

“My favorite racquet would probably be the Head Microgel Prestige Pro. The new ones they make are similar, but the older technology is just more solid. It’s flexible but it stays stiff like whenever you hit a hard shot the racquet helps you drive through the ball. If you want to hit a soft shot the racquet flexes with it – the way you hit a ball. Because there’s a lot of weight in the racquet I don’t have to swing as hard to get a lot of power.” – Phi N., Team Leader

“[My favorite racquet is the] Babolat Pure Drive because it’s the best racquet ever created. For my game, it gives power. It gives me enough control so that I still have touch and my slice goes pretty deep. I can do drop shots easily. I love it.” – Vinny, Assistant Buyer
