It's time to give Muscles his due credit...
I am a great admirer of Muscles. (I believe that his incredible longevity at the top of the game will never be duplicated.)

I do give him his due credit. I also do think that in 1964 Laver just edged him out as the top player for that year.
In the end, the aggressive all-court player always has the advantage against a power-bashing baseliner.
