16. Rod Laver was the king of Australia's golden age of tennis, and he is legendary for his calendar Slams in 1962 and 1969. He was the standard that ushered in the Open era of tennis, and a living symbol to the rise of the Australian Open. Rod Laver Arena is the mecca of Australian Open tennis. Laver is still a good interview when offering up his perspectives on today's great players. He is still an ambassador for tennis.
