Nastase also had either semi or full-on feuds with Ashe, Tanner and Hans-Jurgen Pohmann.

During their opening RR match of the 1975 Masters in Stockholm, Ashe had enough of Nastase's antics and racial abuse, and walked off the court. He was officially disqualified, but later so was Nastase.

However on other occasions, Ashe publicly defended Nastase, like after the 1976 WCT Challenge Cup final, when he had called him a bloody n*****.

He had an altercation with Pohmann in the locker-room after their 1976 US Open match, who he had spat at and labelled as Hitler.

And he had a confrontation with Tanner at the next during their 1974 US Open match.
