Hello TT Readers, I was watching some French open today and the Tennis Channel did a special about racquet/string technology and was wondering what others thought on the matter. Navratilova thought thought that the strings should be banned and Mcenroe and Christopher Clarey (NY Times tennis writer) thought that making the sweet spot smaller (i.e. reducing the legal head size) would also help the game. They believed that tennis was heading in the direction of less skill and more based on pure physicality. They also all agreed that with the current technology, construction of points is becoming less important because players can just flick winners from seemingly impossible locations on the court. I am not so sure i'd like to see a rule change as much as I would like to see a tournament where players are only allowed to use a certain racquet head size or ban poly string or something like that. I would like to see how certain players perform without their extremely powerful racquets/extra spinny strings and see the outcome. This whole coversation started because the commentators were talking about how golf banned the use of long putters and anchoring to the stomach while putting. I think its interesting golf can change and I am curious if tennis might take steps to do the same for game modifications. Thoughts? Here is the link to the conversation... http://www.tennischannel.com/video/...dcode=FrczN5Yjr3rDzmUrLj9qBNi8RMAuVG2e&lid=2& Thanks!
