Admittedly, after 1960, when Hoad's game declined, Rosewall had a dominant edge.
Dan, I present you the trophy for being the fiercest Hoad admirer.
In 1959 Rosewall and Hoad were about even. You "forgot" the Grand Prix results.
Muscles was ranked ahead or equal to Hoad most of the 1953 to 1959 period!
