An acquaintance of mine, who is a 3.0, seems to have a real problem with racquets. He has had four break on him, in four different ways, in the last two months. One broke at 9 and 3 on the hoop, one broke at the beginning of the throat, and I didn’t see the other two. He says that he has never hit the ground or any non-ball objects. He doesn’t hit the ball especially hard. Having never broken one, I have no idea what to tell him. That’s what makes me think that he might be afflicted with some sort of a syndrome which makes him seek attention by destroying his racquets. The only thing he’s getting from me is an assurance that he will never swing ANY of my sticks. Has anyone else had inexplicable and frequent racquet breakages?
