  • Ball spins is very important now in tennis to win games. A good tenn...is player must try to put spin on almost every shot. A good tennis player need to direct the ball to land in the part of the court that he/she want, otherwise it will go off and do its own thing. To impart spin, player need to brush around the ball with the racket, rather than hit through it. Tennis rackets available today have strings in the middle of the racket frame, that brushing around the ball to create ball spins is limited by the frame. Cutting the frame in half to expose the strings, the brushing around the ball with the racket will no longer be limited by the tennis frame. Without the racket frame limit, ball spins can be use as a weapon to win games. The remaining half of the racket must be reinforced so that it will have the same strength as the original one. There are many kinds of materials now that are available that are stronger and lighter or any weight that can satisfy a tennis player's wants. There are two more things that need to be consider. Cutting the tennis racket in half to expose the strings will remove the aerodynamic feature of the cut side of the tennis racket. It is better if the racket will still have these aerodynamic feature. A good design can solve the problem. Another thing in cutting the tennis racket in half to expose the strings and reinforcing the remaining half so that it will have the same strength as the original one, will unbalance the racket. It will be better if weight will be added to counter the lost weight of the cut off side, to have the same balance as the original racket. Added weight can be place at the racket handle. A good design can easily solve the problem. A mechanical structural design for a tennis racket is a must. See More
