You definitely need two racquets at least. having the same kind is an added benefit but regardless you should have two racquets. In fact I think sometimes if they are different it helps because sometimes you just might not be 'feeling' it with one and be fine with the other - so they should be similar.
Now I have a Question.. on racquets.
So I have three racquets, two of the same kind and one different but a slightly similar racquet. Now that one of them has a crack (the one of which I have another) I doubt many stringers would string it and it'll probably get worse if I kept using it. Its my first ever racquet so I'll just keep it as a souvenier so I can look back after winning all those Wimbledons and USOpens and..
So I have two racquets now, both different enough that an immediate switch will result in poor gameplay but similar enough that a set or two and I am comfortable with either. But its been a long time goal of mine to switch to a different racquet, something a bit heavier, something that's headlight, a slightly smaller head size.. basically I have been looking at the nsix-one95 for a long time now and I want to get it or something like that. So what do you guys suggest I do? Cuz then I'll have three different racquets. I have played with a racquet similar to the wilson nsix-one95 and I do think that it really does help my game a lot and with some getting used to and playing with it, I can play much sharper. Only the serve speed might go down a bit but I can make up for that with a better serve no problem.
So any suggestions? Also keep in mind I am not too keen on spending 200$ on two racquets and letting the two I have now sit aside cuz.. I don't know. I'd like to buy one play with it and then buy a second of the same one.. I guess I should do that then. That'd be my suggestion to myself in any case..
