By the way, that combination was also very successful in the 1960s winning Wembley 4 times and French Pro also four times.

Arguably the best ever doubles formation.
I am a long time doubles fan, and I have seen some of the finest doubles teams ever, although I missed some, too.My top ten would go:

1-.Newcombe/Roche
2-.Hewitt/Mc Millan
3-.Bromwich/Quist
4-.Sedgman/Mc Gregor
5-.Hoad/Rosewall
6-.Borotra/Cochet
7-.Fleming/Mac
8-.Edberg/Jarryd ( not on records, but a huge potential 9
9-.The Woodies
10-.Emerson/Stolle


I can tell you about 10-15 more great teams, but letīs leave it like that by now.
In fact, almost any doubles combination between Australian players from 1950 to 1970 makes an almost unbeatable team.It is completely owned by them.
