In any case, my list is hardly fixed, but my top ten (with Agassi outside) shapes like this:

1. Federer
2. Laver
3. Sampras
4. Gonzales
5. Borg
6. Nadal
7. Rosewall
8. Lendl
9. Connors
10. McEnroe
11. Agassi
I can only see putting Rosewall in the top 10 based on his consistency and longevity. However, IMO, Rosewall's best was not as high as the other players on your list. I just don't see Rosewall having a winning record against any of these other players. And, I've seen all of them play, live and up close, with the exception of Gonzales. And, notwithstanding level of play, both Lendl and Connors had more career titles, in a shorter amount of time, against deeper fields, than Rosewall.
