Boycott? That was in 1973. 1972 was a banning. The ILTF banned the contracted pros from their events from January to July 1972, which included the French Open and Wimbledon, and only amateurs and freelance pros could play ILTF events in this period. This action was the final straw before the ATP was formed.
