I think that Rosewall had a better chance to win at RG in 1974 than at Wimbledon or Forest Hills.
I think that he skipped RG after 1969 to better prepare for Wimbledon, a strategy which did not quite work. Better to have played at RG.
As far as Tingay, wasn't he the guy who ranked Hoad at #5 for 1953? I would have put Hoad at #1 for that year. I guess Tingay and I use different criteria.
