You talking wood or racquet's from the 90's? Because when are we saying that racquet technology has advanced so drastically? From wood? definitely. From the 90's? not so much. I'm sure Raonic would serve just as fast with any of the popular 90's sticks.
I think the slower court surface which has resulted in a baseline defensive style of game along with the longer schedule is to blame more for injury than racquet tech.
Edit: I would say strings have had a much larger impact on the game than racquet technology.
