Rocket Rod Laver home for book launch
ONE of Rocky's favourite sons Rod Laver is coming home to Queensland to launch his autobiography.
In Rod Laver: A Memoir (Pan MacMillan) Rod writes about his early years.
These days Rod, 75, lives in California, but is a regular visitor to Australia.
His new book will be launched in Brisbane on November 1.
Rod, nicknamed the Rocket, is the only tennis player to have won the four grand slams in one year - a feat he managed twice.
