If you want peak years only, 1958-59, the score is 5 to 2 for Hoad (2 to 2 at Kooyong, 2 to 0 at Forest Hills, 1 to 0 at Roland Garros).
Dan, I must correct you: Kooyong was NOT always the venue of Australian Championships. Till 1971 the venues changed every year (Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide).

And, as always, you omit the US Pro in Cleveland because Hoad lost twice to Gonzalez there. That's biased account of history!
