Ayala, on the other hand had a RG final, at least.

best pros were Laver,Rosewall, Hoad (when available), Gonzales (idem), Gimeno, Olmedo,Cooper and Anderson.In the 60īs, of course.
kiki, after a longer while and having studied tennis history myself, I must contradicct you: Buchholz was not used to fill the pro field. No.4 and No.5 in several years...

Olmedo, Cooper and Anderson were not stronger than Buchholz.

Ayala was a joke in comparison to Buchholz in the pro ranks. See Joe's book!
