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.
kiki, You are a world class cynic: Rosewall fared not well enough at clay court majors? He did not enter them!!! He only played the 1977 US Open when he was almost 43.

1971 was onesided because Rosewall had a fantastic QF match against Richey in five long sets. 1973 was not onesided.

Rosewall, yes Grandpa Rosewall, leads 14:9 against peak Newcombe and 4:3 against Newk in big events. It's a shame for Newcombe that he trails that way against a 34 to 40 years old.

Please reflect on Rosewall a bit more. You still underrate him despite of the information you got and get!
