Agreed. Laver could and did win tournaments on every surface.

But in the slams, he had to play them on the surface on which they were held. He had no choice.

"Mr. Laver, would you like to conduct your matches on grass or hard-court or some other surface of your choosing; this is your option?" --did not happen!
The fundamental cause of the trouble is that in the modern world the stupid are aggressively certain, while the intelligent are full of doubt.
