Just to repeat I don't think there's much disagreement between me and krosero, but it's about whether the pro/amateur split is the biggest factor in Laver's seemingly late dominance in 1969. I think it is while krosero doesn't. In Tilden's case it's probably his time away from the game, which we saw manifest itself as recently as this past decade in Agassi.
