Of course we are. Most amateur players' racquet considerations are ridiculous. We don't have anywhere near the same power, we don't have anywhere near the same consistency. Yet we all attempt to mimic pro players' equipment. I do the same, even though I know it's ridiculous. It's almost as if I'm hoping for some kind of magic that will transfer the pros' abilities to me as soon as I start using their equipment
