The tennis racket manufacturers make tiny improvements to their rackets, but their main goal is to sell more rackets by differentiating themselves, not make you win more games.
Would you like for me to hit the tennis ball for you too? You can sit on the bench and take credit for the win.
There are more players today serving 130's than in the 1990's. 110lb girls are now hitting as hard as boys. Scrawny guys are now ripping heaters. Maybe there are some game-improving technologies behind that. It's up to the player, not the racquet manufacturers, to perform on the court.
