I agree Rosewall might be greater than Laver, and let's not forget those fantastic YEC WCT Dallas Major victores in 1971 and 1972, where in both matches at an advanced age, he beat Rod Laver for both of the victories. To win against such an opponent at 37-ish in such important matches is a testament to his incredible longevity and ability.
