some do that just cause he won the Grand Slam twice so he's automatically some sort of a default placement in the 1st tier....Rosewall had a pimp career no doubt, a lot of pro and amateur majors won.
I place Fed and Laver as the two greatest based on acclamation, and the then 2nd tier of best ever has Rosewall, Gonzalez, Sampras, Tilden, Borg, Nadal in my opinion
