    These are racquets only. Some of them are way before your time.
    Major leaps
    1) From wooden racquet to alloy racquet.
    2) From alloy shaft to graphite shaft with external joint
    2.5) Stronger and different type of graphite
    3) External to Internal T-Joint to enable 1 piece
    4) Oval to ISO head shape
    5) BG65
    6) Ti wires embedded in the shaft and woven technique for the construction
    Minor hop
    1) wide body (yes, we are talking about your girl friend)
    2) MP grommets and Bridge grommets
    3) nano craps in graphite
    4) slim head
    5) ti mash in the head (some might argue this should be in major)
    6) tapered shaft

    You might as well play with a headcover ... 0.05mm string diameter difference is already very noticeable

    given that air resistance goes up in the order of the 3rd power (n^3), reducing the cross sectional area will have a dramatic effect in reducing air resistance during a swing and thus increase racket speed.

    Good list. I can think of only aerodynamic frame to add.
