Laver won so much after 1963 as you rightly say but not from 1961 onwards as you earlier wrote.
So Gimeno was a really good player, it's just that a few really strong players monopolized the majors and so we should regard him as quality competition?
This sounds eerily familiar to someone else's arguments, but I can't place it now. I'll come back when I think of whose.
