Now, coming back to topic...who was better, Newco or Roche?
prime Newc beat prime Roche at Wimbledon 1969 and AO 1975 while prime Tony beat Newco at FH 69 and W 68...I donīt think that dispute has ever been settled down...
Finally, IMO, the word is to Laver...whom did he fear mostly? He beat Roche at USO 69 And Newcombe at W 69...both were fighting to be Laverīs heritiers, so which one was the Laverīs heritier?
