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.
Yeah, trusting a published book over the words of someone who is pretty jealous of the player in conversation. I mean that's completely absurd, no ?
