And calling the 2006 field pathetic compared to Laver's year is a joke. Players now are way more athletic and professional than back then.
you said it, the fact that Laver was deprievd from playing the traditional slam events during his prime years (1963-1967) avoided him doubling his records at traditional majors.That is why we have to consider pro majors, with the pro fields being pretty much tougher than amateurs.
