tennishead Editor, Paul Newman, introduces the new issue of tennishead
As the so-called “Big Three” of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic continue to sweep all before them, there seem to be barely any records left that are not either theirs already or seemingly within their reach. I suspect, nevertheless, that Rod Laver’s status as the last man to win a pure calendar-year Grand Slam will remain intact for a good few years yet.
As we report in this issue of tennishead, it is anybody’s guess as to whether Federer, Nadal or Djokovic will end up with the most Grand Slam titles to their name, but the challenge of matching Laver’s achievement of winning all four of the game’s greatest prizes in the same calendar year – which the great Australian did twice – has been beyond each of them.
Also in this issue, Laver recalls his remarkable 1969 season, when he twice came back from two sets down en route to his second Grand Slam. You cannot help wondering how many more major titles he would have won if he had not ruled himself out of the next 21 Grand Slam tournaments by turning professional at the end of 1962.
How many Grand Slam titles will Cori Gauff eventually win? On the evidence of her performances at Wimbledon this summer, the 15-year-old American has a wonderful future ahead of her. Patrick Mouratoglou recognised her talent when she was only 10 and has been guiding her career ever since. In this issue he explains why he regards her as a very special talent.
