Last weekend, I was finally able to go out and play with the new tennis racket I got for my birthday. It was a really nice day outside, and I had cleared some important task off of my to-do list, and so I decided to head to a park nearby and get some practice in.

I packed up my equipment, including my brand new racket, and set my home security alarm I found at It was a short drive to the courts, and when I arrived, I was happy to see that the backboard I usually practice on was free. I claimed the court, did some pre-exercise stretches, and then began to practice.

The new racket worked wonderfully! Though it certainly required a bit of breaking in, it had a really great bounce to it, and made the perfect sound every time the ball hit the racket's sweet spot. I was careful not to scratch it, because I didn't want to ruin any of the beautiful finish on it. After about an hour of playing against the backboard, a friend of mine came up to the backboard next to me, so we decided to play a match together after she had warmed up briefly.

We tied in the first two sets, and then I finally won the match. I'd say it was definitely thanks to my new racket!
