Besides: One question to timnz. In an earlier thread, You asked for the Laver-Stolle hth. Have You more information in the meantime, especially for the year 1969? I am interested,, because Stolle was ranked top ten that year by several experts.
Sorry to say Urban - I never did find out about that head to head. (Not sure where I would look either).

In the wikipedia list of Rod's tournament are there other 4 man events? If so, I'll get this Nashville event added and also to the laver/rosewall head to head.
