I liked a lot the big four of the early 80īs and the early 90īs, but I cannot immagine more talent per square inch than that of 63 to 65.
Myself I admire Laver but I have a great feeling for Rosewallīs game.it is hard for me, it is like being asked if you love mom more than dad or the other way back, because I have had the privilge of watching both Laver and Rosewall and it is like listening to the best ever R&R band and the best ever jaz Quarter.
Laver was Led Zeppelin and Rosewall the Miles Davis quarter.I enjoy both.
As I am a classic fan, Laver and Rosewall are to me like Schubert and Beethoven...Tilden and Gonzalez like Bach and Mozart...
