I guess this is sort of an "chicken and egg" type of question. There are some here that believe we need to change to "modern racquets" because the style of play has changed into the "modern game", which means since the game has changed, so the racquets now need to be changed to suit the new style of play. However, in my opinion, it's the other way around. Because the racquets changed, it enabled the game to be changed and ushered in a different style of play. So to me, it appears as if it was the racquet manufacturers that forced this change upon us by continuously introducing bigger and more powerful racquets rather than any changes in the game that was desired by the players first. I mean if graphite racquets were never invented, we'd probably all still be using wood racquets and still playing the game like Borg and McEnroe did back in the late '70's, right? So why did we allow the racquet manufacturers to change the game of tennis and force a new style of play upon us? Did anyone ask for this change? So anyway, which do you think comes first, the change in racquets which forces the style of play to change or the change in style of play which demands new types of racquets?
