A lack of a French major is the one real knock against Gonzales.

If Gonzales had won the 1956 French Pro final (he lost in 5 sets to Trabert), I think it would have been arguably the greatest year for a player in the history of tennis. Gonzales thrashed Trabert 74-27 on their 1956 world pro tour, and won the Wembley Pro, US Pro and the Tournament of Champions. This was Gonzales at his absolute peak, certainly in terms of results.
