"One day"?

Perhaps we can agree here.

One day.....as in:

The 1953 and 1955 Davis Cup final matches against Trabert, which drew the first mass audiences to tennis.

The 1956 and 1957 Wimbledon finals, overwhelming "days" for Hoad against Rosewall and Cooper.

The 1958 and 1959 Forest Hills Pro marquee showdowns against Gonzales.

The 1958 and 1960 Kooyong tournament deciders against Gonzales and Rosewall, and the 1958 second Kooyong tour match against Gonzales, deemed the greatest match ever played by the two players.

The 1957 clay final at The Hague against Rosewall, probably the greatest clay match ever played.

The 1961 and 1962 Kramer Cup final matches against Trabert and Olmedo, perhaps the last awesome display of Hoad's peak form.

Yes, these were good "one days", I agree.
