Hello, I thought up this thread in response to the thread 'Laver V Fed, fast grass court, modern equipment, who would win?'. That is often how people compare in their minds - comparing people with current equipment - but why? It gives an unfair advantage to current players. If Federer and Laver played with 60's wooden rackets, 60's balls etc - then what would be the result. Have to say Laver - as much as I like Federer. A lot of Federer's power and control and spin would be blunted by the old rackets.
