I have already given you Gimeno's highlights in open era, but you just ignore them. Okay.... Stolle, Buchholz, Ralston were still very good even when they declined.. For instance Ralston beat Newcombe at the AO and Laver at the US Open...
Stolle and Buchholz had also good runs in open majors. Not just Emmo.
You are the one that's wrong. Laver participated in the 1970 Wimbledon and US Open and didn't make it past the 4th round at either event. Not exactly "awesome".
