based on what exactly ? he was drained out with those matches on grass itself by the finals and got pummeled by connors

Imagine those grueling rallies on clay with the likes of borg, orantes, vilas, dibbs, solomon, ramirez etc...... @ 40 years old ....... fat, fat chance of rosewall being in any shape to compete by the time of the finals ( that is if he managed to reach there ! )

CC tennis was far more grueling then and very different when compared to the time of rosewall's peak ....
