Laver won the grand slam (all 4 majors) as an amateur in 1962. He then turned professional and as a result was banned from playing the 4 grand slam tournaments for 5 years. He was allowed back in 1969 when tennis turned professional and duly won the grand slam again in 1969. How many grand slams would he have won if he wasn't banned for 5 years? He is the only player to win the grand slam twice and the only player (male or female) to win the grand slam in the open era. He also won the doubles grand slam 6 times and the mixed doubles grand slam twice. He was won the Davis Cup 5 times as a member of the Australian team. How's he going so far?
2 grand slams with a 6 year exile in between, simply impossible to imitate.
2 Grand Slams - Unbelievable. Most of those in the list above Rod have never achieved one Grand Slam! - John McEnroe had the best touch and was by far the most entertaining but Rod Laver has it on achievements.

Without a doubt, the greatest womens tennis player in the game at her time. Even Martina Navratilova went to florida to bring Monica Back to the game after her stabbing, that says allot.
Without the stabbing would have dominated as Graf before her, unconventional but steely! A true champion.
A true champion. One of the hardest fighters the game has ever seen.
