Voila Graf ends up the mythical GOAT, works everytime.

BTW nearly everyone who followed the game back then feels the best surface of both Court and Laver would have been hard courts, and they both probably would have won even more slams if the U.S Open was on hard courts back then. So that "grass only" excuse is also a poor one. Plus back then grass the was the preeminent surface of tennis then, just like hard courts is today.
YOU are killing it na.
