As I made clear in the my earlier post, I was not saying that Laver's testimony is not evidence: I referred to your statement that he would never forget the drubbing. An argument that Laver would never forget a 13-0 drubbing is NOT evidence that the 13-0 drubbing occurred.

You're talking about 1964, I asked about 1963 -- which you should know because I gave the names of the participants that McCauley listed.

Perhaps Collins is the source of the misunderstanding, not Laver.
You think BUD COLLINS, of all people, is responsible for the 8-0 scoreline that Harold Kaese mentioned to Rosewall on Feb. 6, 1963???????
