"Documentation" does not reer simply to press reports, but can include player interviews.
A 13 match series could be the total of both Rosewall and Laver. Without scores there is no documentation. I have scores of only six wins in that series myself by Hoad over Laver. Many sources also have Hoad defeating Laver 8-0 on that tour.

I've seen recollections by players that are so far off that it's quite amusing. The years may fog the memories of the players.
