THE GIFT FOR THE WESTERN FOREHAND IN YOUR LIFE
Babolat 2010 Aeropro Drive Tennis Racquet
Nadal wouldn't choose a racquet that didn't allow for heavy top spin, so if you know someone who puts some action on the ball, this is a good gift idea. The Aero Modular Technology minimizes drag through the air and increases hitting power. And the Cortex System filters and dampens the vibrations that interfere with feel.
THE GIFT FOR THE ADVANCED PLAYER IN YOUR LIFE
Wilson K Factor KSix-One Tennis Racquet
This racket is designed for increased racket head speed. Couple that with solid control, great stability and nice feel and you have a great choice for advanced players. It has the Karophite Black material in K Factor racquets is used to make the KSix-One 95 a stiffer, more stable racquet. By making a denser string pattern the racquet will play with more control since, on impact with the ball, the strings will not flex as much.
A TENNIS GIFT THAT EVERYONE CAN ENJOY
Lobster Sports Elite 3 Battery Ball Machine
Our favorite of all the ball machines, mostly because of its durability and value for the money. This machine can give great workouts to anyone from novices to advanced players. It has triple oscillation and 2-line feature with variable depth. Put another way...it shoots up to 50 degree lobs to practice your overhead, speeds of up to 80 miles per hour to challenge your ability to react with thinking, and heavy top and back spin choices to perfect your ability to return whatever comes your way.
