Gimeno was a good name who might've just had a really bad year, but I think as many as 6 of the top 8 in the world weren't at the French that year.
YaoPau, Gimeno has lost at Wimbledon and US Open, but he was clearly one of the three best claycourters in 1968 (and probably the 1960s),the other two of course L&R.
Emerson was the holder of RG.
