Connors had the combination of great peak level play and maintained that for almost 20 years.
If you are going to look at peak level play only, i would seriously pick Rosol. For that one match at Wimbledon on that day last year, he was better than anybody ever. Amazing to watch, he went for winners on almost every shot and they kept going in time and time again. Although I bet he never plays to anywhere near this peak again.
I don't remember who said it, but someone pointed that Rosol player very well in his next match against Kohlschreiber too. Ace, service winners, winners from both wing, etc. But Kolie sliced him in piece with low...slices that the tall Rosol couldn't handle properly. Beside, Rosol's performance against Nadal was great in the service game department, but not in the return game department. A better server could have won this match.
