DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that the earliest version of tennis didn't involve any tennis racquets at all? Real tennis, as it was once called, started off roughly during the 12th century in France and involved hitting the ball with one's bare hands, then with a glove later on. Additonally, the game used to be called "jeu de paume" which translates to "game of the palm". It wasn't until the 16th century that the glove was replaced with a tennis racquet. Additionally, tennis racquets used to be made of wood, stringed with stretched and twisted cow intestines, thereby creating a high-tension and elastic surface on the racquet's head.

The traditional tennis racquets' gut strings were soon replaced with nylon strings, and the wooden frames with steel ones. The first steel-framed racquet was created by Jean René Lacoste. Although a vast majority of players back then still preferred wooden frames due to their belief that it was more accurate, it was considered outmatched when it came to the steel-framed racquet's power. It wasn't until professional tennis player Jimmy Connors full acceptance of the use of steel-framed racquets did the rest of the players follow suit. Another fun thing to note is that most high-quality tennis racquets are usually sold without strings as most advanced players, and a few beginners, prefer to decide what type of strings to be used with the racquet, and at what tension should they be strung.

Presently, tennis is considered to be one of the most well-known sports, giving birth to tennis-related media like apps, books, and video games.

    "I'm new to tennis or any sport in general so I don't have any basis for choosing racquets like these, I guess I'll just base on the product description? It looks promising though"
