Rod Laver has won around 30 hardcourt tournaments, perhaps a lot more. Again, it's the same as Gonzalez. I counted wood as hard court and many of the surfaces Laver won tournaments were unknown so he could have won far more. There was on Pro Major won on wood.
Ken Rosewall won around 32 hardcourt tournaments, perhaps more. Rosewall won four Pro Majors on wood.
Bill Tilden won probably around 12 hardcourt tournaments.
Jimmy Connors won 45 hardcourt tournaments and 3 majors on hardcourt.
pc1, As far as I know there were two pro majors played on wood in Laver's and Rosewall' time: Wembley and French pro. Thus Laver has won 5 pro majors on wood and Rosewall 9.
