This is all part of your agenda to make Rosewall's competition look incredibly tough and thus raise his status.
Phoenix1983, Your hate against me makes me tired. You don't have any serious arguments and neglect all arguments I and others have given you.
You are very nasty that you claim I have a Rosewall agenda in praising Gimeno.
Why do I praise also Nüsslein, Segura and Kovacs f.i., all of them certainly underrated? To push Rosewall too???
Emerson did NOT dominate the amateurs as much as he wanted. In fact he only dominated two years and generally lost many majors he should have won.
Gimeno won an open GS tournament while Emerson failed totally in open era.
Gimeno reached four open era major's SFs, Emerson none.
In your ignorance you not only try to blame Rosewall for not winning Wimbledon (even though you are disproved already) but also cannot imagine what was the reason why Gimeno did not win a pro major. Guess what!!!
