Best Tennis Strings For Power

Want to add something extra to your tennis game? One of the most overlooked aspects of tennis equipment to improve your tennis are the actual tennis strings.

How To Loosen Tennis Strings

Tennis rackets have evolved massively over the years. Wooden rackets were common place until Jimmy Connors started using a steel racket in the 1970s.

But these were a basic set of strings which I got with my tennis racket. Anyway, I was forced into changing my strings as one of the strings snapped in a rally.
