Be that as it may, the point remains that if you "normalize" one player's data, you have to do it for all. Laver also played before the era when slams were supposedly so important (a supposition I don't happen to agree with, not sure what the basis for such a statement is) and Laver was prevented from playing in a slam for something like seven years. Had he been allowed all that time, his stats would soar above those of players like Borg. Also, Borg was not the only player who usually skipped the AO back in the day when it was held in December and was seen as hindering everyone's opportunity to be home around Christmas.
