Bobby, with all respect, but Your choice of important matches is a bit arbitrary. I still cannot see the WCT third place play off as an important match, it was made for the public as an appetizer for the Smith-Ashe final. It is in fact very seldom mentioned anywhere. I also would add the 1967 Wim pro final as a very important match. It can be also discussed whether the Classic series final in 1970 at MSG for 35000 $ was a important match, or the 1968 LA open final, because it had great impotance for the World ranking. In the US pro, Laver leads Rosewall 3-2, including his semi win 1969. Only at Stade Coubertin in Paris, where Rosewall always played well, he has a substantial advantage in big matches.
