Dan, Wimbledon 1970 is doubtful. A QF higher than a SF?. Emerson never reached a SF at an open major, Gimeno reached four of them.

Gimeno was 6:1 in the first full year they met. Gimeno beat Emerson in straight sets in the 1960 Queen's Club tournament.

Gimeno reached No.3, Emerson reached No.5...
