Rod Laver, is an Australian former Tennis player who was the No.1 ranked professional from 1964 to 1970, spanning four years before and three years after the start of the Open Era in 1968. He also was the No. 1 ranked amateur in 1961–62.
Laver’s 200 singles titles are the most in tennis history. This included his all-time men’s record of 10 or more titles per year for seven consecutive years (1964–70). He excelled on all of the court surfaces of his time: grass, clay, hard, carpet, and wood/parquet.
Laver won 11 Grand Slam singles titles, though he was banned from playing those tournaments for the five years prior to the Open Era. Laver is the only player to twice achieve a Grand Slam, in 1962 and 1969, and the latter remains the only time a man has done so in the Open Era. He also won eight Prol Slam titles, including the “pro Grand Slam” in 1967, and he contributed to five David Cup titles for Australia during an age when the Davis Cup was deemed as significant as the four majors.
