Laver total events won

I have 198 tournament wins (+ 1 shared title). There are some pro results missing from the 60's and Laver may have won more tournaments. Even though he won almost 200 titles he didn't win that many matches because a lot of the pro events were 4 or 8 man tournaments.

Having a quick look at the Wikipedia list 9 early Australian tournaments victories are missing and also a 1963 South African tournament win I found is also missing.This is my list (with help from others).

Re: Laver total events won

What about his doubles and mixed doubles records. To me, those are more impressive. I like to know the one with Darlene Hard in the 1960 Wimbledon Mixed doubles final where Darlene excused herself for "feminine reasons."

Re: Laver total events won

Is it possible to find a draws of these events somewhere on the net? At least those of Open Era?

I mean - beside those that are on ATP and ITF sites.
