 Facts
 

The science of tennis rackets can be traced to the 1970s when wooden frame were replaced with metal. From that date a range of materials have been used, with Graphite making the biggest impact. The impact of metal frames has meant the speed and power of tennis shots has increased massively, with the fastest serve now recorded at 148mph. Metal frames also meant the heads of the rackets increased in size and the strings can absorb more energy. The only downside some feel is that fast courts such as Wimbledon have all become about a fast serve and little else. This has resulted in Wimbledon lowering the pressure of the balls, and trying to slow down the courts to make the games more interesting. And also to give base court players a chance of winning.

The best rackets available to buy are still made from graphite, and usually cost £70 upwards. The lengths are about 67.5cm, with a weight of about 310g.
