    Grass Court GOAT

    I saw lew Hoad play a few times back in the late 1950 s and 60s and i have seen a lot of players since having attended the Australian open , I often wonder what he would do today with a modern racket, I also wonder who would like to play him on the fast tWimbledon centre court.TW

    Lew Hoad's career without the back injuries

    Yes you are right Dan i often wonder how the players of today would match up in Melbourne in Jan 1958 when Hoad and Conzales played that 78 game marathon match in century heat. I do not think any one would come close to playing 350 matches in 2 and a half years in todays format.TW

    Lew Hoad's career without the back injuries

    I always had the impression that Lew Hoad and Roy Emerson were two of the strongest players in the history of the sport. TW
