Ignorant? Mean? Okay, maybe your English isn't as good as I thought it was.

As for Rosewall's post 31yo major titles, I wasn't thinking of pro majors. I think it bears keeping in mind that winning a two week event after 31 is significantly more difficult than winning a one week event. If Rosewall had met Connors in the first round of Wimbledon and the U.S.O. in 1974, instead of the final, he might have been able to make a battle of it.

BTW, you forgot to give me credit for correcting you on Laver's major record in the 70's.
