You again have omitted the 1958 4:1 clay balance of Rosewall against Hoad (Perrier Cup). This was not a minor event!
1959 Rome (GP) was maybe played on clay. Rosewall d Hoad 5-7,6-4,6-1
The same year in GP Rosewall beat Hoad on Viennese clay 6-3,6-1.
In the same event, by the way, Rosewall beat Trabert 3-6,6-0,6-2, that meaning a strong revenge for Trabert's clear win at the French Pro...
You 7:2 balance of Hoad vs. Rosewall is wrong!
I also omitted the 1957 clay tour, which Hoad apparently won 6 to3.
Neither this nor the 1958 Perrier are specified in any detail.
"Maybe"'s do not count.
