Laver singles out Gonzales as the best wooden racquet player of all time (out of the foursome Tilden, Budge, Gonzales and Rosewall).

The entire interview is very good and covers an array of topics, but as it pertains to this thread I thought that was relevant.
The GOAT or co GOAT has spoken. I think Gonzalez probably had the 'biggest' game of the lot with his serve, volley's etc...Although all round ability probably puts Laver at the top. Hard to say with their peaks so far apart. Gonzalez being greater than Rosewall in terms of peak level probably shouldn't be doubted.
