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

Thanks for sharing information about Rosewall here.
Gonzalito, I agree about the (huge) difference in public perception of Laver and Rosewall which I find unjust to a certain degree.

But there is a stadium named after Rosewall: The Ken Rosewall Arena in Sydney in the Olympic Park.
