Hi Cheah..

I'm writing an article soon on gears for beginners. It will be on tennis.my's main portal page. For a quick guide, you should go for a tennis racquet that is above 110 sq. in. head size. Start with a string tension of 53 pounds & see how it goes.U also want to stick to synthetic & not polyester type of strings in the beginning to lessen injury chances as your arm is not used to the proper stroke mechanics yet. Below is one of my beginner racquet choice:

Head Size:
115 sq. in. / 742 sq. cm.
Length: 27.5 inches / 70 cm
Strung Weight: 9.5oz / 269g

Swingweight: 317
Stiffness: 37

Power Level: High
Swing Speed: Slow
Grip Type: [K] Grip
String Pattern:

I saw this at Studio last weekend but didn't pay attention to the price.

I'm currently attending coaching sessions with a racket that I lend from a cousin of mine. The coach recommended some but they are beyond my budget.

Any idea how much this racket will cost?

Don't buy your rackets from Studio R or RSH, go to Topper sports in ampang park, sportprises in bangsar, happy garden, or hock eng in bangi. Those 3 places will be able to give you a better price.
