I think you cannot judge Gonzales and Hoad with current glasses.They played what some consider the most competitive era in the most wild and harmful entourgae, that of the late 50īs pros.Hoad could have stayed amateur and win tons of slams or get pro and, in the very shadows of that world, become a better player by testing day in and out in the most uncredible conditions - which would make parents forbide their sons to become pro nowadays-.I trust those extremely authorized voices, like Bellamy,Tingling,Tingay,Maskell and some others who were literally driven crazy by that blond tornado.Imagine Becker and Nastase in one player, that was him.
