Best guy in the world
He was the best player in the World for 1/2 a decade - late 40's and early 50's. It was his thrashing of Gonzales that pushed Gonzales to greatness.
Definitely should be on the radar.
Two other areas he should be recognized for:
- he set the standard for style of game (Serve and volley + % age tennis) that was the majority style until the end of the 70's - so basically 30 years.
- he was the guy that ran Pro tennis for the 1950's and was also heavily involved through through to the 70's.
