Spaghetti strings were outlawed because they allowed lower ranked players to beat higher ranked players. But things have changed today with the advent of the power game (bigger racquets, stiffer materials etc). The spaghetti string although hit with huge spin , had very little power. Serves were only like 50 mph. Therefore I feel it would make tennis really intersting today. You would have power players versus spin players. Instead we have the same old "boleteri" factory players banging it out all day long. I think Spaghetti strings would make things a lot more interesting and the unfair advantage that existed in the old days will be greatly diminished. Roddicks serve is still a monster and a spaghetti will not help you. Agassi has booming groundstrokes and a spagheti will not give you an unfair adavntage against it. For those of you Youngsters out there, be advised that there used to be a racquet called the Spaghetti string. It was outlawed after Nastase used it to snap Vilas' world record of like 72 wins in a row or something. Stan Smith also lost to Fisbach ranked 200 or something in the world. The Spaghetti string was the first racquet ever banned in the history of tennis (and its a long history my friends). Before the Spaghettiyou could play with a shot-gun.....there were no rules! Personally, I think it was banned for political reasons. Vilas was a very popular player and his whining coach Tiriac had a lot of power. Anyway, what do you guys think?
