good luck! just keep a cool head and try not to get too feisty on court! i get told off for swearing by my mum  pullhair

and topspin- usually i use Head Intelligence iRadical. Ive been using Head for a year now- before then i always used Slazenger but for some reason i prefer Head now. It's much more comfortable for my liking.
heres a thing you didnt know- ive kept every single racket ive owned since i was about 5!!! you should see some of them- theyre so battered!!

you can always rely on wilson to give you a good quality racquet.

i dunno what it is about Head i like so much. I like the tension you can get with the Midplus iRadical. suppose you like most what you grow with...

 no Hehe... one thing i've learnt.. is never swear in sport! I used to do it quite a lot - but since ive got a new tennis coach, he stops us the second we open our mouths (if you swear.. 2 times round the whole tennis club)  :P
It's a good idea not to swear.. ecspecially in sport  goodjob It gets you even more annoyed and you feel that the only way to get your anger out is by swearing. Throwing your racquet is worse.. so i reside to going up to the net and waming the ball as hard as possible - even if it's out... 1 point isn't such a big deal, compared with lots of swearing and a tough set!  dontknow

I must admit, when i do play, i do swear occasionally .....  Whistle
But not as much as i used to....  I was once playing in aa fun tournament (was just a bit of fun, all ages and girls and boys, no separate tournaments) at my club, and i was playing an 8 year old boy. I swore after one shot, and the person in charge made me loose the whole set....  ranting
After that i did try not to swear too much.....  Whistle
