As you have discovered (and BIG laugh on the word "you") almost all Rosewall activity, I guess there is no need to share this with TennisBase, as you for sure have this tournament played in Royan with this nice 5 set final between Ken and Rod......A lot of silence here after the stormy months in the last years. This allowed me to make long lasted researches in the last 4 months about the 2 tennis giants Rod Laver and Ken Rosewall - more or less underestimated by some posters. I prepared short resumes of both with the main intention that if discussing a player we need to know his career in full details.
Let's start with Ken Rosewall - "loved", hated and maybe most underestimated player by posters.
I think I have discovered 99.99% of the single matches (possibly I could miss a couple of matches which I don’t know) and about 90-95% of the double matches (I don’t have an info whether double matches were played on 104 tournaments Ken has participated + some tour stops). It does not include the matches in the junior sections of the tournaments in the early years as well as the veteran matches.

Now based on all data I have about all the players I can definitely say that Ken's career is one of the most impressive (could be also the most impressive) in the all-time tennis history. Having already all the figures I am still amazed (shocked) that a player has played nearly 4,000 matches through his career, 2 or 3 times more than most of the tennis legends. The efficiency of these matches is really epic – 267 titles in 560 tournaments (48%) and 20 titles in 35 tours (57%).
I don't pretend about a copyright of the info unlike a poster here does so. The tennis info is for all people. I just wanted to prepare this full collection and to share it in the forum because everyone has the right to know it. As far as I know nobody did such full collection of a pre-OE player before.
The info above will be constantly updated when I found new data. I will highly appreciate if somebody is willing to help me with the doubles matches which I don't have an info for. I can send a list of the tournaments and tour stops where I miss an info.
Later I will post Laver's resume. Unfortunately I need time for editing the format of the info. It appears very chaotic when pasted.
