To state the obvious you're very partial to Hoad. I think Hoad was fantastic and I don't think he needs excuses to prove he was a superb player.
There were also press reports, still available, that both Hoad and Rosewall signed contracts to play a 13 match series against Laver in January, 1963.
Combined with the recollections of Bucholz and Laver, who were both present throughout the series, this constitutes pretty strong documentation.
"Documentation" does not refer simply to press reports, but can include recollections.
