Tennis Racquet help...Help finding the right racquet?
So my girlfriend suggested that we take up tennis together. I've tried to get her to play golf but she is so impatient and hates how slow the game is. I've played tennis but never too serious, but I was wondering what kind of racquet to get. I mean I love pretty much all sports and she always gets mad at me whenever I'm out playing hockey, or riding my bike, playing in my baseball league or golfing with friends. So I figure it's a sport we can learn together.
What size racquet to get her and myself (both adults)
She's rather tall, runner, but has no upper body strength.
Me: I'm avg height, work out all the time, but have a problem with putting any sort of spin or control with my shots.

Tennis is a great sport for strength, patience and eye contact.
Well ofc you'd use regular sized rackets.
If uor worried about price pick racketsfrom $80 - $120 arethe good ones.
For your GF- You said she has no upper body strength so Prince and Head are good choice since they are both quite light.
Prince- Ignite Price- $80 http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Prince_EXO3_Ignite...
And Prince 03 Hybird Spectrum Price- $70.
Head- Liquidmetal 8 Price- $80 http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Head_Liquidmetal_8... *** Note this is on special from $225***
For you- I recomend Wilson and Head.
Head- http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Head_Titanium_TiS6... Doesn't look apealing but its REALLY good!
Strings(if you need them)- Luxilon http://www.tennis-warehouse.com/Luxilon_Big_Banger... Polyester is good for hitting hard!

Pretty much any racquet will work. Since your a beginner, try a light weight racquet. I use a Head Ti.S6 and it is very light weight.
And about what you said about having issues with putting spin or control on the ball, try using low compession balls to practice with. It's what the 10 and under players use. It helps with control and topspin.
