Yesterday’s answer: Rod Laver defeated fellow Australian Martin Mulligan in straight sets to win his second successive Wimbledon crown. He had earlier defeated Emerson in Paris, and would repeat that feat in New York, before completing the Grand Slam in Melbourne. Emerson again was his final victim.
