Gimeno and Bucholz could see the writing on the wall, and took a weak pro contract rather than get clobbered by Laver, Emerson, and Santana in the amateur ranks.
Strange Dan, as a certain variety I would like to get a post from you with reasonable arguments and opinions.
Here you again are far away from logic and facts.
Buchholz did win a major in 1962!
In 1969, not 1968, he lost a tournament to strong Richey who also reached the final of PSW that year....
Buchholz had his peak from 1963 to 1968, thus 6 years. Not too bad.
Butch beat Laver in the 1963 Wembley tournament by 6-1,6-4. Clobbered by Laver??? (not to talk about Emerson and Santana).
Buchholz won 5 WCT tournaments in 1968, finishing third in the WCT rankings, ahead of Roche, Drysdale and Riessen...
Dan, it's a shame how you distort tennis history. Go to kiki and let him teach you the secrets of tennis....
