Why? Is it written in stone somewhere?
Aren't the dimensions of the court and the height of the net the same as it's been for the past couple of hundred years? If they could standardize on those things, why couldn't they also standardize on the racquets and strings?
People drive themselves crazy trying the hundreds of different strings and different racquets out there and not knowing if they're using the best combination and always wondering if there's something even better out there. Imagine if there was only one racquet and one string. You can stop obsessing over your choice of racquet and string and just focus on improving your game knowing that neither you nor your opponent has an advantage in equipment. Spending your time practicing your strokes will improve your game much more than spending all your time researching and trying the hundreds of strings and racquets and combinations of them until you tear your hair out.
