He has beaten Lendl, Wilander, Rosewall, Ashe, Smith, Laver, Borg, Connors, and McEnroe, just to name some of the great players he has wins against.

Had he taken the AO seriously, he could have very well won it.He was as good as other winners there, at least for a fortnight (Eddo,Tanner,Gerulaitis,Kriek)
