Dan, Rosewall on his fantastic run 1960 to 1962 (winning the French pro on clay and seven days later winning Wembley on painted wood) did beat Gonzalez, Sedgman, Segura, Hoad, Trabert, Gimeno, Olmedo, Cooper and Anderson. Weaker than in 1958 and 1959?

It might be of interest that in all three years the runner up of Paris was not identic with the runner up of Wembley. This shows Rosewall's consistency on a high level at that time.
