All these tournaments had 16 strong participants. Yes, I rate this run as a greater one than even Borg's famous run because Borg had two full weeks to transform his game from clay to grass.

Alone with this achievement Rosewall is for me a GOAT contender.

It's a shame that this probably greatest feat of Rosewall is almost unknown. Therefore a great Thank you to you, pc1.
It helped that the opposition was weaker than in 1958 or 1959.
Rosewall played the 1960 4-man, which sharpened his game for these.
