Gonzalez had Kramer, Budge, Trabert, Hoad, Rosewall, Sedgman, Segura, Laver Gimeno, Newcombe, Roche, Ashe and Smith to name the most important.

In the 1950s pro tour Gonzalez, Sedgman, Segura, Rosewall, Hoad and Trabert played often against each other in one tournament. Day after day an all-time great...
what i mean by competition is that it takes a lot more of hardwork to win matches these days. Just because you dont have multiple slam champions doesnt mean there not good just goes to further prove how tough it is to win slams in this era
