That's why players in the pre-open era and even in the 70s were able to win so many titles. I hope you all understand why it's not possible to win a lot titles because the game is way more physical then ever. So please, don't use Laver's 200 titles as has equal weight to today's standard. It holds a standard to his era but no way it's comparable to today.
Another negative post about the past game and Laver from TMF. What a surprise. You realize that players in the past also have collapsed during long matches also.
