Gimeno beat Rosewall three times in pro majors and once in open majors.
He reached final of the AO, SF of Wimbledon, won French Open (only Laver and Rosewall absent) and lost to Smith in the 1972 US Open in five sets. That even as an old man. Santana did nothing in the open era at majors!
Santana was injured.
The only major WIN was the 1972 French, the only tough match being against Metreveli (Nastase lost in the first round).
Of course, Gimeno was a good player. But not significantly above others such as Emmo, Santana, Stolle, Newcombe, Roche, Ralston, etc.
