I occasionally mentally abuse some of my rackets (yell at them, lock them in a closet, etc.) but that does not seem to have an adverse effect on their playing characteristics.

If I wait long enough, my graphite rackets with morph into diamonds?
(Actually, Gamma used to have a diamond fiber series a few years back.)
Other way around, Diamonds will eventually turn to graphite in a few thousands of years due to decaying of the carbon atom structure.
