Had it been Open Era he probably would have had well over 20 slams, he was such a force for such a long time.

I also dont see how Agassi's career could ever be rated above people like Lendl or Connors, unless one is going into their subjective views of his abilities more than results.
I would say that only Tilden and Gonzalez had a similary long career as Rosewall had (but both were not No.2 at 40 as Muscles was in some rankings).

In my speculations Rosewall would have won about 25 open majors, topped only by Tilden (about 30, but weaker participation) and Gonzalez (about 27)...
