Take a look at the below list of Top 10 Best Selling Tennis Racquets in The World 2017. It is often said that a person who blames their tools is blaming the wrong thing – they have nobody apart from themselves to blame if something goes wrong. Well, if you play tennis you will know that the racquet you play with has a great deal to do with how you play. Being successful in this sport is as much to do with psychology as fitness and having a racquet that you are happy with and that you feel comfortable with can make all the difference between winning and losing a match. When you are playing tennis it is almost like you are playing as part of a partnership. It is not just you out there. You are not alone. You are playing in partnership with your racquet!
Making the decision of which racquet to play with is one of the biggest decisions you will make as a tennis player. Your racquet will define the way you play in many ways and if you choose the wrong racquet it can cost you dearly. You need to choose a racquet that best suits your needs. Do you want something that is heavier so that you can hit the ball harder? Do you want something that is lighter so it doesn’t slow you down on the court? What kind of grip do you want? What kind of strings do you want – they will affect the way the ball bounces on the racquet? All of these questions are very important to consider when you make your decision. If you make the right decision (which you will!) your tennis game will not only be better, as you will be more confident in your ability, you will find the process all the more enjoyable, exciting and even relaxing.

List of Top 10 Best Selling Tennis Racquets in The World 2017
10. Wilson’s Federer Adult Strung Racquet
This is a decent racquet for a beginner or intermediate player who is perhaps on a budget. In usual Wilson style the head of this racquet is actually pretty light which give you good versatility when it comes to racquet head control and vollying. It uses Arc technology for greater stability. In fact, in many ways, and especially for the price, it us quite a cutting edge racquet. The grip is perforated to allow for a coolness and comfort and strings are preset to about 60-63 punds so you have more control. The head is a fairly large size which adds to the control ability. A good starter and something to build your game with until you can afford a higher quality racquet.
9. Head’s Ti.S6
A good standard racquet for a beginner player as it is light weight, has quite a big head size which is also heavy, meaning practising volleys and net shots is easier. Combining the heavy head with the generally light weight frame gives this racquet a solid ability when it comes to serving. It also helps with the follow through shots with groundstrokes. It will certainly return the ball at quite fast speeds, even if the racquet is quite light. Certainly recommended for a player who is either a beginner or does not want to play very seriously.
8. Wilson’s Hyper Hammer 5.3 Strung Racquet
This Wilson is light and easy to manoevre. The head has a slight heaviness to it but it is not quite as top heavy as many other hammer models from Wilson. It provides more leverage than a standard racquet, at 27.5 inches but requires the player to know what they are doing in terms of positioning and timing of swing. It is recommended that it is not used by players lower than 4.0-5.0 level. It would also suit players who have quite a full swing. It is a happy medium of providing power as well as control.
7. Head’s Ti S5 Comfort Zone
Again, this racquet is well suited for a beginner or intermediate player who has a relatively slow swing. This model has an open string pattern which allows for positive sweetspot but does not sacrifice control ability. The dampener on the racquet reduces shock by a massive 25% which helps a lot in terms of returning harder or more difficult shots, or full body serves that players are trying to return. Comfort is pretty key with it but it’s also recommended for its versatility, driven from its large head size and wide strings.
6. Head”s Ti.S6 (with cover)
Moving on to more advanced players now, which the Ti.S6 is well suited (it would also suit intermediate players who are rapidly improving their game). It is light and easy to control. It is made of titanium which helps with strength and shock resistance. It is also very good for spin shots. It is actually one of the world’s best ever selling racquets (but perhaps not quite good enough to get higher than 6 on the list).
5. Babolat 2015 Pure Drive
Babolat’s first appearance on the list comes with the 2015 Pure Drive. Despite coming out in 2015 (hence the name) it still punches above its weight. It has a great deal of power but is alos very comfortable. It is good at absorbing shock and allows players to add more speed to the ball than they have otherwise been used to. It has a bold blue and black design which is very eye catching and certainly worth considering. It is perhaps aimed at more advanced players but it is generally a very good all round racquet. This is one of the Top 10 Best Selling Tennis Racquets in The World 2017.
4. 17′, 19′ and 21′ racquets for children (Street Tennis Club)
A brilliant starter for kids, which is perhaps why it sells so well. It has a very sturdy frame which is also slightly oversized to enable kids that much more control when they are playing. The handle of this racquet is comfortable which is intentional and it is also not very heavy, vital for younger kids who may not be very strong or who may struggle with coordination. A good starter rabbit for young kids, it is worth considering if you kid wants to get into tennis. It even has a smiley face on the frame!
3. Head Challenge Lite YouTek IG
A brilliant racquet for any players who are more of an intermediate level, it is as light as a feather. It is particularly popular with female players. Indeed, it weighs just 260 grams and so it is really easy to handle and is very versatile. It has a slightly smaller head which has its benefits when it comes to manoeverablity and directional control. It is made of a rough and durable hybrid composite material and can also massively reduce impact of the ball, by up to 17%, which adds even further to the control abilities of this fantastic racquet. Certainly one to consider if you want a smaller racquet.
2. Wilson Pro Staff 95S Spin Effect
The clue is in the name with this one. Indeed it has ‘spin effect technology’ which means that it augments the amount of spin that players are able to get on a shot, adding a whole 12 inches to the length of the court and acting as if the net would be 2 inches lower. It is a sneaky bit of kit. It has an open 16×15 string pattern with 16 main strings and 15 cross strings. This allows for more string movement and so even more spin can be added to the ball (up to 10%). If you want the ultimate amount of spin and control then this is the racquet for you. If you feel that you might not be able to control it, then maybe not the racquet for you. It is however really popular, hence why it make sit so high up the list.
1. Head Tour Pro Strung Racquet
At the top of the list comes Head’s ultimate racquet which mixes the best of old style Head style with modern technology. Made from titanium it is both strong and light and the 4.25′ contour cushion grip means that players get ultimate comfort. Vibratiom dampening is dealt with well with the reduction device and the racquet has fantastic balance. Really good value for money and an overall good all rounder. No wonder that it is at the top of the list really.
These are the Top 10 Best Selling Tennis Racquets in The World 2017. Tennis is a really enjoyable game and it is a sport that all ages can enjoy. There are thankfully racquets out there to suit all abilities, all ages and all desires. Technology is getting better with every year that goes by and that is one reason at least why you might want to get yourself a new racquet. Older racquets are all well and good but when you are playing against someone who has a brand new, light and snazzy racquet, it might just make you think differently, and not in a good way. If you think that you are at a disadvantage then you probably won’t play as well and you will probably end up losing your game. Don’t take that risk and get yourself a brand new racquet.
