This is one of those hypotheticals that people state as if they are definitives. No way to say if it would be true.
And given that some of the great players have failed to win on their worst slam during their prime...Lendl-Wimbledon, Sampras-FO, Borg-USO, Mac-FO etc...

Like you said...it's hypothetical and there's no answer if Rosewall would have Wimbledon had he played during his prime.
