I'm still using my Fischer Vacuum Pro Classic 90s, 95, Pro Classic 98 Spin, Pro 1 (320g unstring) from the 1990s. The 6-12 newer rackets I've bought/tried were all garbage in comparison to the Fischers.

The one with the stenciled logo is almost mint condition (ex-demo used a couple of times? with no stratches and non-original replacement grip)
This is a poor piece of video evidence. The video is 'jerky', doesn't even look like the frame rate is a consistent 24 frames or more a second. 'Missing'/fewer frames make everything look faster a la old Charlie Chaplin videos where people walked at running speeds.
It's hilarious. He's quick to point out what slams Federer wouldn'thave won had Nadal been present yet he doesn't nitpick the other players Srinny listed.
For a starters Laver beat a 35 year Ken Rosewall to complete the FO leg of his 1969 Calendar slam. I'm sure Ken is a very nice man but at...
The more skilful team won in the end. I think the Dutch used the tactics most likely to gain a win for them. Rough up the opposition , disrupt the flow of play and look for a counter-attack. It almost worked although Spain also missed some chances aswell.
If Webb if everything you and Breaker say he is then the situation improves for Holland because now they'd be able to do hard and clean tackles with less risk of being sent off which would have been the danger if some third rate/inexperienced referee been chosen for the final.
The Dutch will need to make it a physical contest. The danger however is the risk of being given the yellow or red card when they start flying in with the tackles. If either one is sent off they concede control of the midfield and effectively the match.
Wasn't the most exciting match to watch imo but the more talented team won in the end. Although the goal was came from a simple header off a cross. The Germans were caught sleeping Puyol was unmarked, unchallenged and had a 'free' header at the ball. Good header though lots of power.
+1. Spain had difficulty breaking down Paraguay and scoring. Germany on current form are much better at defending and attacking than Paraguay.
They should beat Spain but it's football and the cliche 'anything can happen' is often true for football matches.
Based on form so far I'd give Germany the edge in the final assuming they beat Spain, I think they will on current form. Van Bommel, he's really riding his luck so far with his tackles. He could be in trouble in the final if the final's referee is strict.

As far as mens slam finals go the Coria-Gaudio final was bad.
The Rios-Korda Aus Open final was the worst in my recent memory, it was dire. I expected outstanding displays of shot-making, subtly and flair. They were capable of it but both choked badly in the final.
The Laureus sports awards are like the Oscars of the film world. To be awarded a sportsperson must achieve outstanding achievements greater in magnitude that all others in other sports. From the official website:
