Yes, he played as an "amateur" during the classic pro era and his slam count is not authentic. He did however beat guys like a young Laver and Ashe. Can any of you older gentlemen fans weigh in and how he stacked up to the best in his 60's heyday? Was he a GREAT player or a top 2nd tier type in the right place a the right time? Note how the fans at the MSG Federer Sampras fete did not give EMO much of an ovation for his rare pulbic appearance!
