    Go to itftennis.com/technical/equipment/rackets/manufacture

    Some interesting pictures and descriptions of how racquets and balls are made. Also some interesting info on strings and stringing.

    From what I've seen so far, there is a lot of room for human error (i.e. drilling the holes, putting on the cosmetics, etc). No wonder there some better versions of the same racquet made at a different plant.
