"...a very important part of tennis and if you ever want to get anywhere in tennis having a good, powerful and effective serve is the key to success. In tennis, a serve is a shot which starts of a point in a rally where the player aims to get the ball in the diagonally opposite service box on the court.

"...in the summer with my tennis skills. I am not really sure why I love tennis. It hasn’t been passed down through generations and I don’t have a tennis court in my backyard – you can’t even fit a goal post in our backyard – but over the years I have just improved and improved.

Murray mint or two a penny? Review with images

AdvantagesTop player

DisadvantagesBottle?

"...metal to close it out, tennis the most mental of sports. But I'm not questioning him. He is just 23 years old and only five years into his pro career. And fear not, tennis greats Ivan Lendel and Andre Aggasi lost 3 and 4 of their first finals respectively before they won a slam, and went on to win many more, and those guys going up against the true greats of McEnroe and Sampras respectively. There is plenty of time for Murray to win a slam and I'm ..." Read review

Squash Everything

AdvantagesWeight , Head size

Disadvantages

"The saying goes that a bad workman should never blame his tools. Well I brought my Slazenger Mystique 460 squash racquet for £30.00 in a discount sports store. It felt the most balanced and lightweight racquet for the price and it has improved my game no end. I started playing again after a long absence and brought a cheap model to start off. I was always struggled in the power hitting against my opponents but this racquet has improved that no end. ..." Read review
