Thanks.I always enjoyed NewcombešKodes rivalry due to their contrasting styles and personalities (Kodes was himself a humorous and well spirited guy but sometimes looked too cold).

I always enjoyed the fierce rivalry that the two new Golden Boys of Australian tennis had, since their chilhood: Newcombe and Riche.All of their matches, lot of them in major semis, went to five sets and the winner couldn┤t win the final in most cases...They had a very very torrid rivalry that one can compare, only, to their ancestors in the 50┤s Hoad and Rosewall.

Maybe that┤s why they were so much close on and off court...
