I think Sedgman hit peak during 1953, as indicated by his drubbing of Gonzales in two major finals.
Sedgman played damn well in 1958 and 1959 as well
Yes, especially in the 1958 Wembley final when he demolished Trabert, and the 1959 Kooyong final when he beat Gonzales in three straight sets.
I always looked at Sedgman as an athlete, much like Emerson later on, who had a special ability at the volley.Better player than Emerson but not necessarily a great talent, rather a physichal force with lots of speed and athleticism all over the court.Now, I think there is much more to it.
