Maria Freak: Pro tennis players-especially men-use very heavy tennis rackets (though there are exceptions), Pete's Sampras's racket was 14 ounces. Agassi's actual racket is about 13 ounces. Rackets with more mass, are more stable and more powerful among many other benefits. Roger Federer's racket is no doubt much heavier than any Wilson racket you can buy over the shelf. Pro players prefer heavier tennis rackets, they're simply painted to look like the one's people can buy to promote sales.
