On Episode 222 of The Tennis Files Podcast, Tennis Express playtester and content writer Sam Jones reveals the best racquets for your game in 2021.
Sam has always been fascinated by new racquet and string technologies and how they can help players improve their games and avoid injury. This passion led him to a position at one of the largest online tennis retailers in the world, Tennis Express, as a content writer and playtester. This is Sam’s second appearance on the podcast, as I previously interviewed him on Episode 103 about the life of a playtester. Sam was also certified as a Master Racquet Technician in 2011. He was a 4 year member of The Southwestern University Men’s Tennis Team (2001-2005), and served as a team captain during his junior and senior seasons. Sam achieved All-SCAC (southern collegiate athletic conference) status his senior year, and then began a 10+ year coaching career.
On the show, you’ll learn how to choose the best racquet for your game, the top beginner, intermediate, and advanced racquets, the best spin and control racquets, how to properly demo racquets, how strings affect a racquet and the best combinations for different players, how to modify racquets with lead tape and other tools, how to make a racquet feel more comfortable, and much more!
