Thanks everyone for the information. This whole era was much different than what I imagined. I guess the networks made sound pretty much the same as today. Number grandslams - major winners - but it was completely different.
I saw some videos of Gonzales - didn't look like he was doing anything spectacular - but if rules were being changed to stop him - it must have been special. Add to that he was completely self taught and started playing tennis after joining the service - makes him quite a special player.
Certainly an all time Great - too bad most of people won't know of his accomplishments.
