lots of politics back then, the most controversial era might well be 1970-1980 and that boycott is certainly one of its peaks.

it would be very interesting to discuss who should be playing and who shouldnīt.Taylor was a british player and he had been already deprived playing Wimbledon since he was a WCT player.

Why did Borg,Nastase not follow the boycott?.For Connors, he was not an ATP memember and he was fighting ATPīs weight in the game.
