Having got past both the British number one Dan Evans, Cam Norrie reached the third round of a Grand Slam for a second time in his career, where he then faced second seed Rafa Nadal. Despite a loss in straight sets, Cam certainly gave all time legend Nadal a run for his money, with Rafa suggesting his opponent can push into the top thirty and gaining a seed himself at a Grand Slam at some point in the future.
The right racket for you …
At the top level of tennis, margins are so small the finest players must use a racket they trust to perform at their best. Interestingly, Cam Norrie plays with the Babolat Control (which is no longer on the market), painted to look like the Babolat Pure Strike. The Babolat Pure Strike comes in a series of weights and a couple of different head sizes and string patterns.
It is vital to get the right weight when buying a tennis racket. If you buy a racket that is too heavy, inevitably you will end up with an injury and, much to people’s surprise, the same goes if you buy a racket that is too light! This is something you will not necessarily notice immediately when you pick a racket up, but more so after playing with it for a period of time which is why we strongly advise you try a racket out first before buying.
The head size is also a vital factor to consider, a bigger head size will offer more power whilst a smaller head size will offer more control. A larger head will also offer a more prominent sweet spot, allowing more margin for error – particularly useful if you are perhaps not as quick on your feet as you once used to be!
We will have a demo system in place waiting for you when the Sports Shop reopens where you can try a selection of rackets across a number of brands and Tilly will be on hand to help find the perfect racket for you.
