Default need help from laver era experts

i'm a collector of old tennis matches on dvd and am hoping maybe someone could help me out in identifying a particular match i recently aquired.
its a doubles match from 1968 between rod laver & roy emerson versus john newcombe & tony roche.
The match is played at roland garros and ive been told it was a semifinal.
but here lays the problem,
in 1968 besides the french open being played at roland garros there was also a few months later a tornament known as the french pro championships played at the same venue...i'm having a hard time finding any information on the doubles events from either of these tornaments so basically i'm still not sure which match i have.

as for the match itself its in french commentary (which isnt helpful because i cant speak a word),and is incomplete with laver and emmo leading 26 63 51.
any help would be appreciated
