THE TENNIS GAME: A CONSTANT EVOLUTION
YESTERDAY...Players had a variety of different playing styles. They were either faster to the net, or were baseliners or played behind the baseline.
TODAY... players are mostly baseliners. But there are two types of baseliners depending on their position on the baseline and the moment they hit the ball. Players are either:
FIRST STRIKERS ..play mostly inside the court ..play the ball on the rise ..use the ball speed from the opponent ..use a precision frame type. First Strikers are normally advanced players using the Pure Control range of rackets for ultimate precision, or the Pure Strike range for Response & Precision, OR they are:
PUNCHERS ..play behind the baseline ..play the ball at the top of the bounce ..create their own power ..use a racket to generate power. Players in this category are generally advanced players who play with the AERO range of rackets OR the Pure Drive range of rackets.
PUNCHERS who are also regular club players looking for more Power and Comfort would use the Drive Max Range. punchers looking for more Power and Playability would use the Drive Range or Reakt Range.
