He actually said something like, "You hear so much about Ken's great backhand, but I always feared Trabert's more, as the more dangerous shot. I always felt that I could beat Ken, but if I was not playing well he would probably win, as he was the more consistent player."
All (?) other players said that Rosewall had the best backhand after Budge.
