I would suggest that the lineup for the 1959 Forest Hills Pro was much tougher, as all ten players had major titles.
Butcholz was a journeyman but rest of field is scaring
I wish Hoad had his CYGS too.He is the guy who should have it besides Laver,Budge and Borg
Whenever I walk in a London street, I am always so careful where I put my feet
