Dan Lobb,

Wembley 1959 was a tournament where the top pros had a weaker day. That happens from time to time. No reason for your zynism.

You underrate both Anderson and Segura. In my rankings Anderson was No 7 and Segura was No 5, tied with Trabert in 1959.

Remember that Little Pancho at 41 had match point against world champion Rosewall at Wembley in 1962 and that Anderson, also a first class player, had two matchpoints against Jimmy Connors in Jimbo's best year, 1974 when being 39...

You find the 1959 Wembley had a rather weak field. Then why did your darling not win but lose to old Segura who later lost to Anderson??
