Does Roger Federer use a dampener?
Despite the fact that the majority of the top tennis players in the world do use dampeners, surprisingly, the most successful male and female players currently playing on tour, Roger Federer and Serena Williams, neither of them use vibration dampeners in their tennis racquets.

To answer your question right off the bat, yes, tennis vibration dampeners can help with tennis elbow. If you’re not familiar, tennis elbow is when your elbow tendons are inflamed and painful. Usually this inflammation and pain is caused by strain or over use.
The placement of a vibration dampener is dictated by ITF rules, which state that you can only install one below the bottom cross string or above the top cross string. You can slide it up or down to touch the cross string, but it can’t be anywhere else, including the interior of the string bed.
