Jan 24, 2019

MELBOURNE, Australia — Fifty years after Rod Laver won the last true Grand Slam in men's tennis, he is fairly confident the feat will be replicated one day, unlikely as it may seem. "It's got to happen again," the Australian left-hander said Wednesday at the Australian Open. While Steffi Graf won all four major tennis tournaments in one season in 1988, no man has done it other than Don Budge in 1938 and Laver in 1962 and 1969. Serena Williams and Novak Djokovic each managed to collect four major trophies in a row but spread out over two seasons. Laver's...
