Ricardo "Pancho" Gonzalez would turn 85 today. "Big Pancho" for many years was considered GOAT by many experts, at least till Laver realized his second Grand Slam. Nowadays Pancho is strangely under-rated. The "experts" of Tennis Channel ranked him only at place 22... Gonzalez (or Gonzales as he often is called) ruled tennis world for at least 7 years, probably even for 9 years. He won at least 14 majors (17 if we consider Forest Hills Pro) and was victorious in seven big pro tours ("World Series") against many all-time greats. He won tournaments from 1948 to 1972 (being the oldest tournament winner in open era) and beat top players like Laver, Rosewall, Newcombe, Roche, Ashe, Smith, Connors, and Borg when being a grandpa (actually!) at 40 and older. Altogether Pancho won at least 121 tourneys. His game was dominated by his huge service (arguable the best of all time), his great forehand, the tough net game and his mobility.
