IMO, the peakest Laver surpasses peakest Rosewall but it is fair to assume that records will tell that Rosewall had much better results than Laver, and the two Dallas finals were probably the biggest matches from 1970 to 1975 or 1976, as I recall.
I agree mostly. I think I don't have a stubborn passion for Rosewall. I just try to defend him against wrong arguments and against those who praise Laver but neglect Rosewall. Of course both players are giants of the game and worthy to be praised.
But should I discuss with a man who does not include Rosewall in the top ten and who back this his opinion with "arguments" like Laver was No.1 though 1973? ATP has Laver at place 8, Tingay at place 7...
