And here I go.Tony Roche.One of my favourite misteries and subjects of the open era.An intelectual challenge. Not as big as Bobbyone wants him to look.A mere one timer.But the best ever one timer.And a case of injuries. I saw him play live.Great lefty serve, very solid backcourt game and one of the three first real good top spin FH of history.The others are Santana´s and Laver´s who invented topspin right before Borg emerged. And of course that net play.Unbelievable flaw, positioning and first step onto the net.His net play is not a single ounce behind that of Laver´s,Mac´s and Edberg´s.I think it can easily be better than them.As I said, saw him live.Fast indoor carpet the last time.In an era loaded with great S&V players, he was an Aristocrat of that style. So, at the end the easy reason for not winning more is not that he just peaked when a certain Laver was on a mission.When a certain Rosewall was still in full posession of his means.When injuries stroke him badly.No, it is a mental thing.He was unable to translate that talent into wins and he had no excuse for that.Honestly. But after having said that, one more thing: on a fast indoor or grass court, old supreme and old green turf, if he and Newcombe had a good day you better not show.Doesn´t matter if your name is John Mc Enroe and Peter Fleming.Or if it is Ken Mc Gregor and Frank Sedgman.You have no chance at all.It is like fighting Ali and Foreman at once. Maybe Ken and Lew in 56? That is the only realistic possibility.
