Hoad had the edge over Laver into 1964. In February, they played a two-man EXHIBITION tour of Laver's home state, with Laver winning 7 to 1. These results should not be (but no doubt are) be included in official totals. The following month, Hoad won a four-man tour of New Zealand, with Hoad and Laver posting 7 and 5 records, (Rosewall ended up 6 and 6, Anderson at 4 and 8). However, Hoad was awarded first place with a 3 to 1 edge against Laver. When it counted, Hoad could still dominate Laver. (Hoad lost his first three matches against Rosewall, but won the fourth and deciding match against The Little Master, the last time he would win a big match against Rosewall). Foot injuries slowed Hoad from this point on, although he won a big match against Laver in 1966 at Sydney, and against Gonzales in the Manly final in 1965, and the Wimbledon quarter-final in 1967.
