Sorry to bother ya team.
I got asked to write this last night but the match analysis and history of Millman had been covered in detail.
So I wrote this on the fly...

Please read!

I detect a possible sleight of hand matching Edmondson's ranking of #212 against the seeding of the players he faced rather than their rankings (e.g. John Newcombe at #2 seed was ranked #20 in the world).  The AO 1976 was a SINO*, in nowise comparable to a modern slam, a draw of 64 with only one player from the top ten (Rosewall, the top seed, was #6 in the world), and consisted of >70% Australians.

SINO = slam in name only, a bit like Brexit in name only Winking
