1972 Press Photo ROY EMERSON AUSTRALIAN TENNIS PALYER

Description
TENNIS PLAYER ROY EMERSON OF AUSTRALIARoy Stanley Emerson (born 3 November 1936) is an Australian former tennis player who won 12 Grand Slam singles titles and 16 Grand Slam men's doubles titles. He is the only male player to have won singles and doubles titles at all four Grand Slam tournaments. His 28 Grand Slam titles are an all-time record for a male player. Most of his titles were won in the final years of the period where the Grand Slam events were open only to amateur players, just before the start of the open era when professionals were admitted into tennis's most prestigious events. Roy Emerson is the first male player to win each Grand Slam title at least twice in his career. In the history of tennis, only Margaret Court achieved this feat before him. He is fourth male player to win all 4 Grand Slams during his career, after Fred Perry, Don Budge, and Rod Laver. He is the first male player to win more than 11 Grand Slams in his career (this was later surpassed by Pete Sampras (14) and then Roger Federer (16)). Tennis critics and former and current tennis players consider Emerson to be one of the greatest tennis players of all time.(WIKIPEDIA)
