He was Laver's nemesis and is on par with Rod in hth. Pasarell was possibly the most talented of them but rather inconsistent. He played that famous match against Gonzalez and another five setter, at the 1968 Wimbledon, against Rosewall. Rex Bellamy then wrote that it was a match the Gods would like to watch...
Pasarell was the victim of Hoad in the 1970 French Open, Hoad's last significant win in slam play, 6-4, 3-6, 6-4, 6-4.
