Rod Laver was pretty good!

Bob Hewitt was a wrong 'un!

Old Bob became a Saffer citizen didn't he before his penchant for rape, underage sex, etc. became known? Dubbo was well rid of him.

I see that on his Wiki entry his current residence is given as: the Eastern Cape, South Africa. Rather vague covering a lot of square miles.

Prior to his conviction he lived in Bedfordview and ran a coaching clinic from the Sharon Country Club at the end of the road where I lived in Edenvale.

I once had the pleasure of spending 6 weeks in an apartment at Laver's Tennis Resort, Delray Beach, FL. Had wife and son join me for the school Easter hols and son collected stray tennis balls. They travelled back to SA in his hand baggage!

Coaching by Rod himself was available at vast expense! Son lobbied unsuccessfully for lessons.

Surprisingly no one has been on here mentioning the fact that Cameron Norrie was born in Joburg :))

I could tell he had an 'accent' on TV today but (shock horror) thought he sounded 'Aussie'.

This accounts for the accent :D
Norrie was born in 1995 in Johannesburg, South Africa to a Scottish father from Glasgow and a Welsh mother who were both microbiologists.[3] After a burglary incident in 1998, when Norrie was three, he and his family moved to Auckland, New Zealand, where his parents still live.[4] In 2011, at age 16 he moved to London where he lived for three years before attending Texas Christian University in Fort Worth from 2014 to 2017. In June 2017 he ended his studies at TCU to turn professional during the grass court season of the 2017 ATP Tour.[5][6]

Since turning professional he has been based in Putney, southwest London (close to Wimbledon).[7] When the Indian Wells Masters was cancelled in March 2020 at the beginning of the pandemic lockdowns, Norrie decided to fly to New Zealand to live with his parents for the rest of the year.[8]
