Most points systems would give the higher ranking to 1975.

Certainly, the slam events have a greater value than a minor, but even the minors have varied weight, depending on their tradition or if they are a national title.
The Canadian is the third oldest tennis tournament in the world, and the Italian has a long and distinguished tradition.
I would agree with a weighted points system, which is what I believe is used now.

Rosewall in 1975 was ranked No.6 in the ATP list but not ranked in the top ten by the experts (I rank him at a Co. No.10 place).

All experts would agree that the 1974 Rosewall deserves a higher place than the 1975 Rosewall. You seem to be the only one who neglects top placings apart from tournament wins...
