My " darling" Newcombe beat Rosewall i one sided matches at the 1971 Wimbleodn semi and 1973 US semi.Please, reflect on Newcombe a bit more.
I actually don't think Newcombe gets enough attention on these forums. While he wasn't for his career as great as some all time greats I believe at his best he was superior to many great players. He was one of the greatest pressure players I've ever seen and he could play on all surfaces. If he was in shape and at his peak he could defeat any player in history.
