Andres had more skills and I rank him No.3 for several years, Buchholz "only" No.4 once and No.5 in some other years.
Many, including Kramer considered Gimeno the third best player in the world for many years in the 1960's. Evidence of this was at the 1968 Wimbledon, the first Open Wimbledon and Gimeno was seeded third, behind Laver and Rosewall.
