And I'm not saying Vines is in Laver's league, in either peak performance or achievements. But you're creating a pretty obvious double standard when you laud one man's performance in pro majors and completely dismiss the other's.
Vines was the best player in the World for about 5 years between Tilden and Budge. His serve and forehand were major weapons, and, his forehand was considered by many to be the greatest ever.
