Laver won pro majors against fellas such as Gonzales,Hoad,Rosewall,Segura,Gimeno,Olmedo and a few more greats.Vines had his share of pro majors, but Tilden was really old, although I have no problem accepting that Perry was a helluva player and competitor.But you can´t ever put Vines in Laver´s league.Similar to comparing Emerson, a great player to Gonzales, an absolute all time beast
