Carsomyr,

Don't let Limpinhitter make you uncertain regarding your all-time list and Rosewall's place in it.

Rosewall was strong enough to lead 10:7 against Laver in big events.

He played many tours instead of tournaments unlike to Connors and Lendl who always played tourneys. Thus he won less tournaments but still at least 137!

Rosewall cannot have a winning head to head against many of your top ten because he did not play against 6 of them and has a negative balance only against players above him in your top ten. He only played Borg when being almost 39...

Rosewall, as pc1 once wrote in this forum, played against the strongest fields ever with Gonzalez, Hoad, Sedgman, Segura, Trabert, Laver, Gimeno, Newcombe, Roche, Ashe, Connors , Borg, Vilas (he stands 2:0 against Guillermo).

As you might have seen in the Limpinhitter/BobbyOne discussion, Limpinhitter tries all tricks to put down Rosewall's greatness...
