No, you're revising history. Laver has 2(1962 & 1969). People don't care much about the 1962 since it was from the amateur. 1969 was still 3 grass and 1 clay.
Athletic and well trained may not be important in the 60s, but today if you lacks any discipline, forget it, you ain't going to be a great champion.
