I love that drop shot going across his body by Rod. It is kind of funny how the commentator, Pancho Gonzales seemed in admiration for Rod's play. Both were sworn enemies.
Pancho sued him once. Rod mentioned in his 1971 book about Pancho's hypocrisy towards sportsmanship (Pancho accused him of bad sportsmanship) with the comparison of the Arab and the Israeli's conflict.
I read Richard's book: Man with a racket; the autobiography of Pancho Gonzales as told to Cy Rice
, c1959, and although I don't remember precisely, I think at that time, Richard had a lifetime edge over Rodney. (Something not
reflected in their open-era, ATP head-to-head page...):
