thanks for this thread; i just had a brief roommate who was israeli and said amos was INCREDIBLY famous...in israel. A true national hero. he knew i had many matches from 1969 on and couldnt figure out why i didnt have a collection of amos mansdorf. i said, 'well, i can tell you he never made a grand slam final, so if you're telling me he's an all-time great, i don't know what to tell you.'
but now i see he made the QF at the aussie...at least once. go amos!
