Re: Laver vs. Rosewall, h2h

There are discrepancies with the list on Wikipedia.

It gives 77 wins to Laver and 62 or 63 to Rosewall.

On that list the place of their last meeting in the Australasian Tour 1963 is unknown. On your list it's Sydney. Rosewall's win could not have been confirmed. The match may not have been played. Or maybe it's not the same match?

You mention a second meeting in the Madison Square Gardens on March 24 1963. It's not on Wiki.

On the Wiki list, the place they met on April 7 is Louisville. Is that correct?

It seems there were also meetings between them in San Francisco on April 26, Denver on April 30, Winnipeg on May 2 (Rosewall won but the score seems unknown), three meetings in unknown cities between May 5 and 10 (Rosewall won 2 of them and Laver one but the score seems unknown for the three meetings and two in New Zealand (Hamilton East and Nelson) in March 1 and 8 1964.

I don't know whether the list on Wiki is perfectly reliable but it can be good to mix both because both lists include matches the other does not have.

Anyway thank you for your list.
