I am writing a paper on Guillermo Vilas for school and need to prove his impact on Argentine tennis using past ranking lists to show the number of Argentine players before and after Vilas. If anyone has information as to where I could find old ranking lists from the 70's to the 90's please reply. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What years are you looking for? I've got a lot of old Tennis Mags from '84 and on.

I was mentally preparing myself to add going through stacks of old Tennis Mags and scanning pages (what a project that would be) when I remembered coming across that site awhile ago. Good thing.:p

I can't even name any Argentine tennis players before Vilas. He was to Argentina what Borg was to Sweden. Shoudn't the ATP Tennis site have most of this information?

ANd then some.
Total understatement there.

Know what you mean, but I can at least name a handful of pre-Borg Swedes who played world-class tennis. My dad's era, basically (and I know these names through my dad: Ove Bengston, Ulf Schmidt, Jan Lundqvist, Lennart Bergelin (who later coached Borg), Sven Davidson --all solid circuit players. I am forgetting one or two, I'm sure. We'll just have to get Steve G to delve into the past! Bud Collins woud have to dig far deeper to find a pre-Vilas Argentine (I know I've got nothing). At all. All I can think of is Jose-Luis Clerc who came along when Vilas was active for several years already.

gugafan05,

You can find the members of Argentina's Davis Cup teams here:

Click on the scores and a page will come up giving you the names and results of the players that particular year. Happy hunting.:)
