The incredible fact about post 69 Laver is not that he didnīt win a major or get to play a final...the man that had won everything on sight in 69 DID NOT EVEN REACH A SINGLE SEMIFINAL from 1970 till 1977, when he retired.I mean, based on that, a guy like Davidenkho or Verdasco could claim to be better than laver for a while.

So, there must be another serious reason, other than injuries.IMO it is the pursue of money plus the fact that he felt, as he wrotte, so much released after taking his second GS that he literally didnīt care ( which is hard to believe from such a hungry competitor as the rocket)
