He is underrated while he has one of the best records of the open era and is the last " Emperor" of the Australian Reign ( 1950´s to 1970´s). Took 7 slam titles + 1 WCT title ( beating in 5 sets finals guys like Kodes,Smith,Rosewall,Connors and Borg) He was known as the " player of the fifth set" ( not a Borg or a Connors would like to play a peak Newc in a fifth set) The guy had one of the best Serves and Volleys and S&V mechanics of any time, one of the most feared FH shots and yes, a tinny but effective sliced BH and a great lob, that he practiced a lot in doubles.His OH ranks among the all time best, too. He took doubles to a new dimension, along his old time buddy and friend Tony Roche, himself one of the greatest, if not the greatest underachiever ever ( due to injuries).Both have been considered by many, the best ever doubles team, although this can be subjective. And, he was one of the funniest, likeable guys ever, from Japan to California loved by peers and people who met him.No one could talk BS about him, not even a guy like Connors, who sought his help for a while long after Newc had retired an open up a very succesful tennis ranch in Lakeway,Texas. This is a post, obviously adressed to seasoned TT posters who watched him live or on TV during Newc´s glorious years ( end 60´s to middle 70´s). I´d like to share your experiences about this guy, one of the greatest players anytime and one of the greatest characters ever.
