Consult a book written by my former teacher and friend, Philip Downs, "Classical Music" published by Norton.

Emerson made a good run at Forest Hills in 1969 and Wimbledon in 1970.
Gimeno did what at Wimbledon?
Andres reached the semis.But peak Newcombe just crushed him.Newcombe is heavily underrated by some of those that worship Rosewall and Gimeno.and maybe those that have in such high esteem minor players such as Nusslein and Segura...
