It's really astonishing that Laver did not reach a big SF while older Rosewall reached 10 of them.
A certain player called Patrick Proisy reached a major final and a major semi.Cliff Richey and Roger Taylor played several major semis...and Laver all of a sudden is unable to get past the quarters against players he´s roundly beaten in 69?
