As much or more than Roche or Hoad no other top player has had to endure aa many serious injuries with no less than 7 visits to surgeon
So when he was gaining confidence he almost inmediately felt injuried which deprived him of more major titles
I still recall his last match in 1982
He was facing peak Lendl at Madrid semis and lost a pretty close match at 33 yrs age
I have never seen Lendl aknowledging and clapping his hands the way he did to Orantes
"Read my lips.No more taxes" RR in 1980
