    I'm just curious...At 2.32 in this video when Fernando says that he used to play with Dunlop as a kid, it seems to me that he says he played with the "Vacuum" (pronounced with a spanish 'b' sound on the 'v'). Am I hearing things? And if not, does he really mean the FISCHER Vacuum (and just doesn't have a clue) or did Dunlop actually make some sort of "Vacuum" racquet back in the day?

    I thought about this the first time I watched this months ago. Didn't really understand what he meant the way he pronounced it but you seem to have hit the spot.

    Verdasco still using his TF paintjob. Also, what's with the shoes?

    I am convinced Verdasco is in his "slump" due to this racquet change. I think he hasn't found the one to replace his old TF. Something's wrong. He shouldn't be bowing out to these players such as Simon this easily (1,3)

    He played with his old TF today. It was not even black-out...........I am sure Dunlop got to be pissed about it.

    Dude Verdasco is an anti-capitalist or something. He's scr*wing all major companies :D

    Does this mean he might leave Dunlop?

    "Muck"dasco is a PITA for all major racquet companies. First he took Yonex for a ride and now Dunlop. If I would the responsible person at Dunlop I would kick his spanish ass!
