My dad swears by him...

A 1999 Sports Illustrated article about the magazine's 20 "favorite athletes" of the 20th century said about Gonzales (their number 15 pick): "If earth was on the line in a tennis match, the man you want serving to save humankind would be Ricardo Alonso Gonzalez."
The American tennis commentator Bud Collins echoed this in an August 2006 article for "If I ha'd to choose someone to play for my life, it would be Pancho Gonzales".
