Gimeno fared worse, in my view.
Emmo and Gimeno both lost to Laver and Newcombe at some of those events, but Emmo gave Laver and Newk their toughest matches of the tournament, while Gimeno lost in straight sets.
Gimeno had relatively easy pathways to those standings.
No, Emmo looks better.
Their only meeting was at Wimbledon in 1959, and Emmo crushed Gimeno.
