1963 to 1967 laver and rosewall won every slam between them

the most dominant pairing and rivalry of all time- the 60s were also the strongest era in mens tennis history

from 1960 and 62 rosewall won the wembly and frnech pros every year
in 1962 laver won the calender grandslam
in 63 rosewall won the pro slam- the first man in history to do it

don budge, fred perry, elsworth vines- godfried von cramm all played together

budge, perry and vines all got screwed over their legacies because of WW2- damn wars coming in the way of important shit like tennis

ppancho gonzalez's legandary domination of the us pro needs no mention (but in case there are those who dont know about it)

gonzalez was so dominant in the 50s they changed the rules to make it harder for him to win (similarly to what happened to schumacher)
So, how many of these matches have you seen?
