We always talk about great singles and doubles players. McEnroe is often mentioned as great in both but Okker deserves to be among the top also with greats like Newcombe, Roche, Rosewall, Laver, Court, BJ King, Navratilova, Nastase etc.
Now that you mention WTT, which was run similarly to currentīs NBA, it would be great to have a record book of , at least, finals, MVPīs and all stars.As well as conference or division team ups...maybe Mustard or Krosero can post it up...
