    get your racket(s) out fot heir bag everyday. hold them in your arms and pet them, saying nice things to them..Promise them you'll be nice if they help you, promise them to change that stinky grip...
    if you don't move when you sleep you can take them with you to bed..

    Not smack it on the floor when you miss/do stupid shots? :D (i've yet to learn that technique though..)

    Not to fling it around when your bored and slightly annoyed by the server taking AGES to serve?

    And... Yes i stroke my racket lots too..... oh oh not to forget to give him/her a name ;)

    Here are some ways I take care of my racket. It's not a complete list but it's all I can think of right now:
    - Wash the racket. Sometime, I would get white scuffs from the cork of the birdie on the frame because of mishits. So I would clean that off. Then lightly clean the frame with a damp cloth. A clean frame will allow me to inspect it for any damages such as chips, cracks, etc.
    - Each rackets get it's own "individual bag" to be stored inside my racket bag. This prevents the rackets for hitting each other and getting damage.
    - If I broke a string while playing, I would immediately cut the string bed to prevent uneven balance in the frame.

    the best way is to use them regularly. some of my spares i'll try to use them during warmup sessions just to keep them in playable condition

    You know, I chuckled at this little typo until I realised that 'Smatch' describes my attempts at a smash almost perfectly!

    How to take care of your raquets? Simple really, avoid clashes. I've had raquets last for years with no special treatment. The only time I've had raquets break is after clashes.

    Take it to the doctor. You can never be too sure with these things.

    Explain please.
    Surely you don't just leave them on cold car boot. Dont throw them or hit the floor in anger. Stringers to rotwte or replace the grommets. Not sure there's much else to it.

    The advert video for the Nanoray Glanz pretty much said the same thing.

    Bring your racket to a Thai Massage Parlor for a chill session. You will see the results.

    = Much more flexi shaft ;)

    Kiss it everytime you make a great net kill, smile at it whenever you change the shuttle, blow it (handle) when it gets sweaty, stare at it when an awkward shot is played, shake it about when you get tense, apologise when you hit the frame of the racket and rub the area, carefully remove or put on cover at the beginning and end of each game resp....
