Rosewall's best years were from 1956 to 1965. He had the misfortune to be overshadowed by the two greatest players ever (in Rosewall's own estimation) in the late 1950's, Hoad and Gonzales, and by Laver from 1964 (Rosewall's pick as #3 all-time).
Segura was already 37 in that tour. You should not forget it.
