Bobbyone is too biassed and seems bothered that somebody just doesn´t flatten Rosewall day in, day out.I have seen him, I have posted many times that he was just impressing.he seemed in total comand and his positional sense was just unmatched.He was, sometimes, unreal.he hit what many consider ( and I am one of them) the greatest ground stroke of all time.His backhand, I just laughed at how ridiculous perfect it was.he seemed like a 80 yrs old guy that just happened to go by a tennis court.He was making the other guy feeling miserable and he would not looked up.He was a player of a cartoon design, that is the best definition I can find for him. I have posted that, if I could choose a personal teacher for my tennis, I´d pick him with very few doubts, even if I know I´d be happy to just be 1/1000.000 of him. having said that, the matter of the subject is that when somebody brings in such a great champion ( and sportsman) as Newcombe and even Kodes, people over here just have the need to belittle them so to enhance their fav players.It is not fair and it proves that the jusgement or tennis experience is somehow failing. now that you borught up Leconte, I always thought he was really talented but, because there were not so many attacking players in europe, he got really hypped.His left arm was compared to Laver. maybe but Laver did a lot more inteligent things with that left arm.french press is just hysterical, you know.
