Especially when you consider that his first major wins were in 1953, and that he probably reached absolute peak form in the late 1950's.
To extend competitive form for another 17 years past his absolute peak (remember, Rosewall defeated Nastase in clay court FINALS in 1975 and 1976!) is unbelievable.
What did those Hopman grads put in their porridge?
