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)
