Rod Laver - Author

About the Author

Rodney George Rod Laver MBE holds the record for the most singles titles won in the history of tennis - with more than 200 career titles - and was the second man to win the Grand Slam in 1962. Rod remains the only player, male or female, to have claimed two Grand Slams - once as an amateur and once as a professional. He was ranked World No.1 for seven years in a row and is the last male player to have won every major twice. In January 2000 the home of the Australian Open was named Rod Laver Arena in his honour. Rod currently lives in Carlsbad, California.

The Golden Era

The Golden Era

Author: Rod Laver Format: Hardback Release Date: 05/11/2019

Between the 1950s and 1970s Australia was the world's tennis superpower, producing players who dominated the grand slam events and the tour in both the amateur and professional eras. Of all of our players, none were more successful, famous or influential than Rod Laver whose two singles Grand Slams have never been equalled in men's tennis. The Golden Era is Rod's account of those great years. As a participant and eye witness, he captures the excitement and drama of the great wins, and gives us genuine insight into the Australian champions who gave us so many victories. Written with all of Rod's incredible tennis knowledge, and with key interviews from Frank Sedgman, Ken Rosewall, the late Lew Hoad, Mal Anderson, Ashley Cooper, Roy Emerson, Fred Stolle, John Newcombe and Margaret Court The Golden Era is the definitive story of a quarter century of Australian tennis domination that will almost certainly never be repeated.
