Adidas Rod Laver Vin Rob Laver is arguably the greatest tennis player of all time. The Australian legend is the only player in tennis history to have twice won all four Grand Slam singles titles in the same year. His signature Adidas model was first released in 1970 and has only grown in popularity since then. Adidas put a modern twist on their classic design with the Rod Laver DP. The new features include a leather tongue and a tweed herringbone pattern on the side panels.
