The media and TV guys do not trumpet Rosewall today to the same degree of emphasis as they do Laver, that's for sure. There is no arena named after Rosewall that I know of. Laver gets all the glory, Rosewall is portrayed as like a secondary, just another guy from that era, with Stolle, Newk, etc.

Perhaps like Courier and Chang are portrayed as second tier to Agassi and Sampras.

Thanks for sharing information about Rosewall here.
