H Ashley -

Yes, well said. When a player is talking about racquet power, what he usually has in mind is the inherent power of one racquet compared to another, which is completely separate and distinct from whatever skill level or technique the player brings to it. It's not that players don't matter. Skill matters a great deal. It's just that to understand racquet power, you have got to understand the fundamental building blocks of ball to racquet impacts first.
