    I hope he gets better. He's one of the people who helped make tennis the great sport it is today and by all accounts a terrific person.

    My original "favorite" player back in the 70s when I began playing, and a fine man by all accounts. I also pray for a speedy recovery.
    It appears he suffered no heart or brain damage. He's always been the epitome of youth, and I hope this pulls him through.

    First Laver, now Rosewall -- what is it with Australian tennis players of the 1960s and strokes? Cliff Drysdale and John Newcomb better get themselves checked out.

    Get well soon.

    Would you believe I first learnt tennis from a tattered, old, dog-eared book by Ken Rosewall?! The book I got had no covers and we just tried to follow his advice/instruction, LOL!

    Cliff Drysdale is from South Africa. But, Emmo, Roche, Stolle and Mal Anderson better get checked out. I don't know what's up, too many shrimps on the barbi?

    It takes much more than a stroke to finish with that terrific fighter, muscless.He´ll ever come back, just remember his 1974 matches vs Stan Smith and J Newcombe and you´ll know what kind of stuff is old Kenny
