True, but in my opinion it was just the start of Rosewall reign (in fact, some consider Gonzales the world no. 1 in 1960), while they had no matches when Rosewall was totally dominant.

No doubt that Gonzales had a greater career achievement than Rosewall on wood indoor. I think he was clearly the GOAT on that surface.
