Strings:

When was the last time you had your strings replaced?

The general rule of  thumb is if you play 3 times a week, you should be restringing 3 times a year –  playing 4 times a week, 4 times per year, etc. The skill level of the player certainly becomes a factor. The top professionals in the world have their rackets strung after each match. This also depends on the surface and temperature where the tournament is held.

 

You can’t see it with the human eye, but every time you hit the ball, the strings either bend give in or crack which causes lost tension.  Dry or dead strings causes great shock at impact and can contribute to tennis elbow or shoulder damage.

 

So yes if you haven’t played for the last six month to a year or more think about getting a good string job  before hitting the courts.

 

Tip for the month:

You should see the ball hit the strings as well as leave the strings. If this doesn’t make any sense, a lesson or two on how to watch the ball  may be in order.
