Bobby, give us a reply, not a novel. Condense! No, I do NOT rate the Facis as a WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP, although you attempt to puff the minor European tours. But in 1962, there were NO pro championship tours, the Facis stood out. Again, you confuse armchair experts with true experts, the players, who generally rank Hoad as GOAT in playing level. "Achievements" mean very little if they are not backed by a high standard of play. I would say that "peak" form should be evident in the major events, it is no use if, like Kovacs they occur when everyone has an off week in a secondary event. Hoad peaked in the major events.
