Thanks, NadalAgassi for your arguments.
In my speculations regarding an always open tennis, Rosewall would have won about 25 majors, equal with Gonzalez and behind only Tilden (who probably had weaker opposition than Gonzalez, Laver and Rosewall). By the way I give Laver "only" around 20 open majors because of his shorter career than Gonzalez and Rosewall had. These four are my all-time greatest players, followed by Borg.
