1972 Boycott? Hewitt/Mc Millie won a record number of slams, that alone puts them in a league by their own.

Plus, no other team ( with the possible exception of Bromwich-Quist and Borotra-Cochet) played with so much touch, angles and deep knowledge of the position.They moved like they were one single man.

What is your problem, Mr Bobbyone?
