Early 70 are not talked so much here but it is just ad tough as late 50
Newcombe,Ashe,Laver,Rosewall,Roche,Nastase,Smith,O kker,Gimeno,Santana,Lutz and of course Kodes
Better even than Gonzales,Hoad,Trabert,Segura,Sedgman,Olmedo,Anders on,Cooper and Rosewall which is to say a lot
I don't see it.
For one thing, Rosewall was younger and better in the late 1950's.
Laver was beginning (at 32) to show age.
Really, the prime-age stars are Newcombe, Ashe, Roche, Nastase, Smith, Okker, Kodes. No one here to challenge the Gonzales or Hoad of the late fifties..
