It is beyond doubt that racquet technology has changed the game of tennis. This change has been gradual and probably cannot be defined by one moment in history. However, if you had to pinpoint a match or event that signalled the "watershed moment" or the "turning point" in tennis technology what would you say it was. Was it, for example, Jimmy Connors winning Wimbledon with his famous steel racquet? Was it this event that brought to light the importance of technology in the game or did that only become clear when graphite began to appear? Any thoughts?
