I read somewhere the 1971 French Open was really open to WCT players, but only Ashe has decided to play there, which was one of the causes of the ILTF ban on WCT pros in the first part of 1972.

Laver won in Rome in 1971 a few weeks before, but he was probably injured during the French Open that year.

Can somebody confirm this?
