    Preparing this picture I used this post
    Rosewall saved a set point at *4:5 in the 1st set and trailed *1:3 (0/30) in the 4th. The final lasted 2 hours 23 minutes.

    Newcombe’s route to his 5th Open Era title:
    1 Roy Barth 6-2, 6-3, 6-4
    2 Nicholas Kalogeropoulos 6-1, 6-2, 6-1
    3 Owen Davidson 9-7, 6-3, 7-5
    4 Dennis Ralston 14-12, 9-7, 6-2
    Q Roy Emerson 6-1, 5-7, 3-6, 6-2, 11-9
    S Andres Gimeno 6-3, 8-6, 6-0
    W Ken Rosewall 5-7, 6-3, 6-2, 3-6, 6-1

    No breaks of serve in the 5th set against Emerson until the last game of the match – Newcombe saved 5 break points before in that set.
