Crealy once beat Rod Laver but I have forgotten when and where.

In 1972 he was runner up to Colin Dibley at the Kitzbühel claycourt tournament (Austrian International Championships) even though both players were serve and volley players...
Great event and greater place Kitzbuhel
Dibley had a booming serve and had good results on grass, did not know he also won on cc
Crealy almost beat Laver at 69 FO, it was Laver hardest match that yr at Paris
