The main element of tennis equipment, of course, is a tennis racket. However, the game largely depends not only on the quality of the racket itself, but also on the quality of the string tension, which will be discussed in this article.
The frequency of the string tensioning procedure can be due to many factors, primarily the elongation of the strings over time, playing in unfavorable weather conditions for the strings (increased ambient temperature leads to expansion of the strings, lowering their elasticity, and the minus temperature makes the strings too tough, contributes to their fragility), and, of course, depends on the intensity of use of the racket by the athlete. It is believed that the frequency of string tightening per year should be determined by the number of racket owner's training sessions per week, or the procedure should be repeated with a frequency of 40 hours of play, as well as with a reduction in string tension by 25%.
To tension the strings, specialized devices are used, divided into lever and electronic. With the help of electronic machines, the tension of the strings can be carried out more accurately than with the help of lever ones, since the result of the electronic machine is less dependent on the friction force and the degree of stretching of the strings. To obtain high-quality string tensioning, it is important to carefully select a tensioning master who can determine the limit when the strings reach the set voltage.
The success of a tennis player depends on how accurately and correctly the master performing the stretch of strings does his job. If the strings are loosened, the impact spot will increase, but the ability to control the direction of impact will be limited. If the strings are stretched excessively, the tennis player will be able to control the blow, however, feeling the ball will be difficult. Also, when stretching the strings, it is necessary to take into account their pattern, distribution.
A tight pattern allows you to get less impact force, but at the same time gives you the opportunity to control it better, and, conversely, when the strings are freely tensioned, the impact force increases, but it becomes more difficult to control it. In the process of tightening, the master must always pay attention to such a feature of the racket, as the method of string installation - one- or two-stage.
If this feature is not taken into account, the probability of breaking the strings in the short term increases, or the use of a racket in the game becomes completely uncomfortable. In conclusion, it is worth noting that it is not worthwhile to pull the strings on a worn, deformed, cracked rim of the racket, it must be thrown away, we do not recommend playing with such a racket. The old framework will not allow strings to be tensioned to the required tension, as they will not be able to withstand the elastic force of the strings.
