Why do tennis players return the tennis ball back to opponent?

They don't always do it when the balls are changed, but players do change their rackets every couple games. Because they hit so hard, the string tension becomes looser after a couple games. Being pros, everything needs to be exact. That lesser string tension compared to the regular tension could mean one ball being an inch out, instead of being in. So yeah, that's why players change rackets.
