It is important to purchase the best tennis racquet based on your skill level for the best performance results. My instructor laughed at the racquet I took to my first tennis lesson. It was outdated with a long handle, skinny grip, narrow-sized head and was the cheapest I could find. However, amateur players should still consider investing in a decent beginner's racquet or game improvement racquet for the best results. Listed below are the top five racquets for amateur players from most to least expensive.
Prince O3 Speedport Red
The Prince O3 Speedport Red is an updated version of O3 Red. The Speedport Red is more comfortable and easier to maneuver than the O3 Red. The racquet allows fast swings and produces solid hits from the baselines. With the Speedport Red, you will be amazed by the spin, control, and consistency of each serve. The price of a Prince O3 Speedport starts at $130.
Dunlop Aerogel 4D 500
Once you get adjusted to the Dunlop Aerogel, you will love it. It is the ideal tennis racquet for players who are interested in moving to an advanced level. The racquet is extremely lightweight and has the 4D braid which is designed to increase strength and torsional stability. Some players say the racquet lacks power but offers a lot of control. You can purcahse the Dunlop Aerogel 4D 500 at starting price of $99.
Wilson KFactor KZero
The Wilson KFactor KZero is one of the best racquets for beginner players who desire control and power. It is a little on the expensive side for a beginner racquet starting at $79.95 but is great for someone who is a serious recreational tennis player. The Wilson KFactor KZero is lightweight which makes it easy to handle and maneuver. Players can also hit the ball hard without using a lot of upper body strength.
Head Liquid Metal 8
The Head Liquid Metal 8 does not offer as much control as the Speedport Red or KFactor KZero, but it is known to be a great game improvement racquet. The racquet has a large sweetspot with minimal vibration. Players with light and medium swings find the Head Liquid Metal 8 useful. This racket starts off at $65.

It is the perfect racquet for the beginner or intermediate level player who wants an all around tennis racquet at an affordable price.
