My opinion is: Emmo,Stolle,Santana would be the only 3 amateurs of their time to be reasonably succesful against the big pro likes: Laver,Gimeno,Gonzales,Trabert,Hoad or Rosewall.Rest of amateurs, like Ralston,Mc Kinley,Osuna.. would just suck.
I agree that only the three top amateurs would have been reasonably successful (if at all) against Laver, Rosewall and Co.
