I think that you understand the importance and significance of establishing the hth on grass, the surface of three of four slam events.
Dan, you have not answered my remark that the former pros (Laver, Rosewall, Gimeno) won the vast majority of open majors in the first years of open era.

I correct me: they won 8 out of 10 majors (or 10 out of 13 majors). They did it even though they were old men then! Is there a better prove that the outcast pros have been clearly better than the amateurs?

Lew Hoad might have been impressed by Santana's 1965 grass game because Manolo was earlier known as a typical claycourt player. Absolutely he was not awesome on grass in comparison to the top pros.
