In 1964 it has them as co-number 1's. I'd like to see a list of both of their tournament wins so I could make up my mind. On the face of it though Laver seems to nod. (Dominant head to head plus 2 out of 3 of the majors). I wonder why the ranking voters at the time had Rosewall out on front or at least equal to Laver?
timnz, Rosewall was the official champ because he won the big tour (consisted of many tournaments). I plead to give Laver and Rosewall a tied place 1.
