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..
Deeper than 50 a top
The top 15 of the early 70 is the best IMO
Perfect mixture of depth and to
1970 Laver could beat 1959 Hoad and 1972 Nastase could also beat 1959 Gonzales
