Avoid extremes such as hot cars during the summer and freezing temperatures in the winter. Heat is arguably the worst extreme for your racquet as it can damage both the strings and the racquet itself.
Replace your grip and overgrip after they become worn, dirty, or lose their original feel. A secure grip keeps the racquet from twisting upon impact (which can compromise your control and place excessive stress on your arm).
Strings can lose tension and resilience over time, after which performance and feel declines. Visual signs of a worn string bed include excessive fraying, discoloration, chronic string movement, and loss of control. For these reasons, we recommend that you restring about every 50 hours of play.
If your racquet starts slipping and sliding in your palm, you likely need a grip change. If the ball starts launching erratically off the string bed, it is probably time to restring.
