That's the kind of historical anecdotes that I love.

It's weird but it fits very well into the context of that period. You certainly all know about the farce round the Ashe/Okker final in Forest Hills.

Another awesome scoreline here.

Bristol West of England Open 1969 2nd round:
Ralston def Taylor 18/20 6/2 6/2

Dennis Ralston was defeated in the next round by Owen Davidson. The match against Taylor was suspended for darkness at one set all. I think the match against Davidson was in the next afternoon, but not sure.

Roger Taylor must be the only player to have won 20 games in 4 sets !

Two others:

Queen's Final 1969:

Fred Stolle def. John Newcombe 6/3 22/20


London - Royal Albert Hall 1970 (pro tournament; Mar. 4-7) QF:

Marty Riessen def. Marc Cox 25/27 8/6 7/5

Riessen went on to win the tournament, defeating Ken Rosewall in the final and also won the doubles tournament. Since he had a long 5 set match in the doubles final, he asked for the singles final to be a best of 3.

Code:
R1
El Shafei def Laver 6/3 6/3
Rosewall def Ralston 10/12 8/6 10/8
Riessen def Newcombe 3/6 14/12 6/3
Pilic def Taylor 7/9 16/14 6/3 
Buchholz def Stolle 8/6 3/6 6/1
Cox def ??
Drysdale def ??
Okker def ??

QF 
Rosewall def Pilic 10/8 9/7
Buchholz def El Shafei 2/6 10/8 9/7
Riessen def Cox 25/27 8/6 7/5
Okker def Drysdale 6/3 6/2

SF
Riessen def Okker 9/7 6/3
Rosewall def Buchholz 6/2 6/3

F
Riessen def Rosewall 6/4 6/2

Doubles F 
Okker/Riessen def Laver/Davidson 6/3 13/11 9/11 2/6 7/5

And a Happy New Year to every fan of the Mahut/Isner match
