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.
urban, Thanks for your New Year's wishes.

The first name of Rowley is Peter.
