kiki, Thanks that you made this interesting list.
A few remarks. I could imagine Rosewall ahead of Connors for that period, but I can live with Ken's fourth place.
But I would rank Tony Roche much higher than you did.Also Okker. Edmondson is much too high in your list. And Riessen is much too low ranked. Remember that Riessen often gave heavy problems to Laver (their hth is about even).
