I might agree.
Do you mean that players today will be never able to duplicate the particular surfaces (of Laver's GS: 3 on grass and 1 on clay), or that they will not be able to win a Grand Slam today at all?
The fundamental cause of the trouble is that in the modern world the stupid are cocksure, while the intelligent are full of doubt.
