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.
The quote of winning no sets is an incorrect quote from Cas Fish, who stated that Hoad won a stretch of 39 straight sets during the 13 to 0 skunking of Laver by Hoad.
