Hall of Fame
Never heard of most of them, except Rosset and Gunthardt, I believe Rosset won an Olympic Gold in singles, some time ago.

Legend
Charles or Karl Aeschliman(n) played in 50 Davis Cup rubbers between 1923 and 1934, according to Max Robertsons Encyclopedia of tennis. I think, he played doubles/mixed with Lenglen and/or Wills in that famous Cannes encounter 1926. I have seen a picture of him posing with both women. Switzerland was 1913 one of the Founding Members of the ILTF.
