My New Tennis Racket!!!

I'm so excited you'd think I was a kid waiting for Christmas morning! (smile)

We just went to our local tennis shop, where I purchased a Babolat AeroPro Drive. It's probably being strung (or is done being strung) as I type this...

Babolat AeroPro Drive - my new racket!

Cool, isn't it? (grin)

We also bought a case of Wilson tennis balls. And Marilyn bought a very cool T-back tennis top on sale that she's wearing.

Aside from that, we got both of Marilyn's mistressmarilyn rackets re-strung and re-gripped, and my (now old) racket re-strung and re-gripped. (For a grand total of around $350.00, which was fine.)

Marilyn needs to buy a new racket, too -- but isn't sure what she wants.

Considering we'd seen my racket for sale on line this morning for around $300, we felt like we were getting a deal to find it for $200. (grin)

(I think the guy at the shop was a bit surprised, though. He'd been trying to talk me into buying a Head racket that ran around $60...)

On that note, I need to phone and see if there's a chance these will be ready today! (I find that hard to believe, as in the 'old days' we'd often have to wait a week to get a racket strung...)
