Did he realize that he might as well turn pro, that Laver would only continue to get better in the amateurs, and that he might have better luck in the pros BEFORE Laver got there?
Mc Call had 5 aussies and 2 latins but no pure US player unless you assume Gonzales and Olmedo were WASP
So he desperatey signed journeyman Butch
He should wait a bit more and sign Mc Kinley or Ralston
