I think Vic Seixas was always below Trabert even in the amateurs. In 1955 Trabert was almost invincible. He won the last three majors of the year and there was a ridiculous number of consecutive tournaments that he won. And as great as Trabert was he was destroyed by Pancho Gonzalez 74 to 27 in a long tour.
Laver didn't like playing lefties. I also think that Trabert beat defending champion, Drobney, to win his first Wimbledon.
