Davis Cup Team 1973 (Tennis) - 1973

Australia's 5-0 defeat of the United States in the final was the most devastating away final victory in Davis Cup history. An ageing Australian team, Rosewall (39), Laver (35), Newcombe (29) and Anderson (38) showed they were the best in history. A remarkable fact was all four players (and the captain) had won the US men's singles championship.

When considering the stature of an athlete or for that matter any person, I set great store in certain qualities which I believe to be essential in addition to skill. They are that the person conducts his of her life with dignity, with integrity, courage, and perhaps most of all, with modesty. These virtues are totally compatible with pride, ambition, and competitiveness.
