I think Vic Seixas was 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.
Drobny was the first great champion ( bar Kozeluh) from current Czech republic.he was famous for his legendary drop shots that some journalist rate still unique.He was the first guy to beat Rosewall at the Wimbledon final.
