That's one of the reasons Laver had some problems with Tony Roche. Of course the main reason is that Roche was just a super gifted player.
Not that this means anything but one of my fantasy match ups is the two great lefties, John McEnroe versus Rod Laver at Wimbledon. Just an FYI, I believe Rod Laver's last Wimbledon was John McEnroe's first Wimbledon. In some ways a passing of the guard from one great lefty genius to another.
