It had a great final, the most famous AO match of the 70s, but the rest of the tournament was just lame.

Still nobody says something about the 1970 edition?
The Roche/Newcombe semi was arguably the best match of the decade in the AO.

Did Ashe enter it?

I didnīt know much about 1970.Ashe won it easily and Dick Crealy was one of those minor aussie players that had big time with the depleted fields of the AO ( Dent,Warwick,Marks and so on)
