All the best in the New Year to You, Bobby. To my knowledge, there are two other important books on Rosewall, one by Malcolm Rowley and one in German by Robert Geist. I think, Barrett knew Rosewall very well since his young age, because he worked with Slazenger, which made the rackets for Ken. He once told a story, that he - as a lefthander - hit with Rosewall before the Dallas WCT match with Laver in 1972, serving from mid court. They remarked, that there was a pipe running through the court on one service box line. And in the later match Rosewall kept hitting his serve to this pipe line.
