Default Nastase, Newcombe and Smith

I find it really interesting that Newcombe never beat Nastase, in fact he only ever won 1 set from him. In contrast Newk lead the head to head against Smith.

Correction : Apparently Nastase lost to Newcombe in their first match in 1969. My point still stands though about Nastase's dominant head to head over Newk.
