This is interesting.
Actually, a topic like this on any other forum would gather quite a crowd. Unfortunately, subject matters like " Post your favorite hotty " seems to be more of an attractive / appealing opportunity for the geniuses of this board to express themselves.
Anyway, with regard to the topic of technology and tennis in general, my take is this:
Tennis would be completely unpopular if it were being played under the conditions of old, wooden racquets and yada, yada, yada.
On the same token, technology like the Pro Staff racquets and the more control-oriented racquets would be interesting to see.
The fact of the matter is, in all fairness to players, many aren't using today's technology. They are actually using older models of racquets. It's been speculated that Roger is using the Pro Staff 88 (custom made for him by Wilson) and not the nSix, so if you went out and purchased it ... oh well.
There's something called a paint job, you know ? It's how companies continue to sell and manufacture their products. The game hasn't really changed, you have to think about it. These players have played with the same frame for 5-10 years, do you really want to switch ?
There is an English Proverb, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" and that applies here.
Maria Sharapova since winning 2004 Wimbledon has changed racquets 3 times (according to her frame design) - it was actually exposed that they were marketing 2 separate products to American and Japanese consumers. Interesting, huh ?
Real tennis fanatics are aware of such things.
Tennis would be much more interesting without that Babolat, that seems to have helped so many of the players out. Especially one that has a pretty big serve, I'd like to see him execute it using an older model of a "player's racquet" - but then again, don't hold your breath.
