Hi guys i was watching the incredible ability that Rod Laver has;its not a coincidence why many consider him the GOAT...

So i noticed that he never ever or very very few times he touched or handled the raquet with the other hand (in his case the right one) hes left handed....

Any other Pro does that ?? as often as the way he use to do????

thanks

I'd have to go back and look, but I seem to recall Laver holding the throat of his racquet when he took it back on the backhand side. Otherwise, though, you're right - he always did that stance when receiving serve, both arms kind of at his side, that massive left arm hanging down, ready to bludgeon another forehand.
