Rosewall was clearly the best in the World in 1961, 1962, 1963, and arguably in 1960 and 1964 too.
I agree wholeheartedly on Agassi but he should be evaluated by what his career was, not some of hypothetical what ifs or wasted potential, wouldnt you agree. Kudos for him for making that late run and salvaging atleast a large portion of his wasted potential and becoming an all time great, but it still was never going to be able to make up for all those wasted years in his physical prime.
