March 29, 2015, 12:32 p.m. It takes a special kind of courage to walk onto an arena stage with nothing but a guitar, a loop pedal and your voice, but at the age of 24, not only did Ed Sheeran take Rod Laver arena with the confidence of a veteran songwriter, he single-handedly blew the roof off.

  Open Question: Are these good seats in Rod
I might be going to the Jason Derulo concert in Rod Laver, and I was wondering which of these seats are the best. In the photo, the dark blue dots are where I will be seated and the yellow on the small maps to the right is where in relation to the stage is where I will be seated. That means, either a block close but almost side on the the stage and relatively far back, or a block further away from the stage but on an angle and only 4th from the front. Thanks!

  Resolved Question: Why hasnt any male player
The Grand Slam is winning ALL 4 Slams in the same calendar year before you all start arguing lol Steffi Graf won it in 1988 *No I am NOT thinking of a 'golden' grand slam - that's the grand slam with Olympic gold medal thrown in *David is totally correct *kasper - Laver played the top seeded players of his day whether they were all amateur (before pro tennis) or as a pro. They were ALL the best in the world. I would say that surfaces are different along with pace of the court and raquets and strings are very different to what they were. Back in the day only the French was on clay the others were all played on grass
