I hope that you will not be offended if I contradict you, either.
The 1955 Australian was played immediately after the 1954 Davis Cup final, which explains why Trabert was entered in the tournament in the first place. It was a severe anti-climax to the Cup final, and Trabert's only slam loss of the year. Hoad was still slumping.
The big match of the year was the 1955 Davis Cup match between Hoad and Trabert, which drew over 10 million TV viewers, and the Vice-President of the U.S.A., Richard M. Nixon, to present the Cup. The very first color broadcast by NBC.
Hoad defeated Rosewall ON CLAY that year.
Dan, Where have I forgotten to contradict you?? I use to contradict you almost every time (maybe too often for some...).
Your rankings are the worst I have ever seen (and I have seen some strange ones like Hopman's who ranked Emerson ahead of Rosewall).
Your new "arguments" are as absurd as all of your's. You don't have any reasonable answers to my arguments and to the facts and to the experts...
Instead of studying the facts you are citing Richard Nixon and such stuff.
Shame on you!
