Don't blame yourself. How many people can reach the level of Laver and Sampras?
definitely.That daddy must be the GOAT over 80 years old...I haven´t had many guys over 80 free to play, you know.
The best in using commando tactics.You - almost- never know what he´d throw to you.Only a Rosewall would, since they played so many times each other...
Good one...but that BH was so personnal...I don´t think it is doable.
I tried to imitate Mecir: particularly the way he moved around the court.
After tripping over my other foot and landing face down on the court a few times, I gave up and went back to being myself.
I'd say it would depend on the 5.0. He'd win some and he'd lose some.
I might agree. We don't know Laver's physical condition today and he is going to be 74 years old this year. Perhaps if he didn't have the stroke I would tend to do he would win against any legit 5.0 but who knows. The gut feeling is that he would beat any 5.0 but I understand he had some problems with his right side. Maybe it affects his movement greatly.
Again, he's also had a hip replaced - so it's not just the effects of the stroke that make movement a challenge. Ten years ago, he still hit the ball brilliantly but didn't move terribly well; I can only imagine the movement has gotten worse since then.
Tennis historians of the Internet in the future will look at this thread one day and declare complete unadulterated idiocy.
I think he'd consistently lose. No offense to Laver. He didn't move that well in that exo with Hewitt and that was a decade ago.
