You only brought the first part of Bud's words. The second is:"Rosewall had the last competitive word".

"He seemed to be overshadowed" does not mean he was weaker.

Alas, I cannot tell you what I mean about you because I could be banned!

But I can assure you that I have had more phone call with Bud Collins than your idol has won majors...

You are the third who doubts that I am a friend of Rosewall and Collins respectively. Limpinhitter was the first one...
So Rosewall had to wait for his adversaries to decline? Sounds about right. And I don't think there's many ways to take it, he was #2 behind those other players for most of his career wasn't he?

Touched a nerve I see, I have nothing but your word that you know these people. As demonstrated by some of your comments about modern tennis your word is not infallible nor beyond reproach.

Why should I trust your phone conversation over Bud's actual book? The book says that Bud considers Federer at the very top of all tennis players, no such mention of Rosewall.
